Lately I have been thinking that I need to share my quilty love outside of my house / family / friends. When I saw 100 Quilts for Kids popping up in the Blogging universe, I knew that now was the time. The deadline is September 30th so I have time yet to get a quilt (or maybe two!) in.
I am not sure what I am going to make yet, but I have decided that my finished quilt(s) will be donated to Phoenix.
From their website "Phoenix is a non-profit, community based organization located in Halifax. We offer at-risk and homeless youth (ages 12 – 24) the opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness and find a better path. Our services are free of charge to any youth who reaches out to us – we don’t require adult permission. Phoenix prides itself on being 100% non-judgemental and welcomes people from all cultures and walks of life. We offer a wide range of programs and services including: prevention, crisis assistance, emergency and long-term shelter, employment and learning assistance, counselling, parent support, food, laundry, medical support and more."
I think youth involved with Phoenix would love a quilt to cuddle in as they brave their new paths. I have a big weekend of sewing ahead!
Do you quilt for Charity? Would love to hear all about it.
