Quilts for Kids is a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming fabrics into patchwork quilts to comfort children facing serious illness, trauma, abuse, and natural disasters. They ship quilts to children in need across the country.
A Letter from the Founder, Linda Ayre
It seems like only yesterday that I discovered a wealth of discontinued fabric samples from a design center in Philadelphia, being sent to a landfill. It bothered me that they were tossing away usable fabric. so I decided to start this charity, Quilts for Kids.
It is YOU, our wonderful volunteer quilters, who have proved those naysayers wrong, YOU have given from your hearts and helped to turn tears into smiles for hundreds of thousands of children that you never even knew existed. Our goal continues to be donating over 30,000 quilts yearly and supplying children in need with other much-needed items. With the support of volunteers through our chapters, we can say we have touched the lives of tens of thousands of children yearly. Thank you for always coming to fulfill the needs of the children we seek to comfort. Your quilts make a difference in their lives.
To all of the individuals and businesses who help us comfort children every day, thank you!
Founding President, Quilts for Kids, Inc.
As we begin our annual appeal this year, we want to thank everyone who contributed last year. We exceeded our goal, enabling us to send quilts to hospitalized children from Flagstaff to Savannah…Oklahoma, New York, North Carolina, and all across the country. You comforted children displaced by wild fires, tornados, hurricanes and war. You showed love to children suffering from domestic violence and broken homes. Sadly, these situations continue and we need your help now more than ever. Please give as generously as you can.
