Quilts for Kids
We are seeking unique handmade quilts to gift each of the fifty children we accept into the Children’s Village in Guatemala. Your name will be showcased on the quilt.
All quilt donations will be provided with a charitable tax receipt for the cost of the materials (receipts will need to be submitted).
Quilt specifications are as follows:
-57 inches x 75 inches
-100% cotton top and flannel backing
-filling “warm and natural” or bamboo (no polyester or wool please)
Would you like to sponsor a quilt for a child in the Project Somos Children’s Village?
There will be one quilt for each child that moves into the Children’s Village. The cost to sponsor a quilt is $500. You will receive a tax-deductible receipt for the full amount. Your name will appear on the quilt along with the quilter and the name of the child. You will also receive confirmation when the child arrives in the Village and receives the quilt you sponsored.
Quilts can be sponsored in lieu of a gift for a friend, a grandchild or other loved one. You can choose the name that you would like to be placed on the quilt. Whatever you decide, you can be assured that a child will be made to feel very special and warm because of your generosity.
Please contact us to learn more about out how you can bring warmth to a Guatemalan child. Please feel free to download, print and distribute the “Quilts for Kids” poster in your local Quilting Shop, etc. to help get the word out there!
We have three quilts available for sponsorship at this time!
