Comfort Quilts for Japan

Wrap-Them-in-Love Foundation (WTIL) is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that was created to help needy children within the US and around the world.  Their year-round mission is to collect donated quilts and distribute them to children so they can be wrapped in love and comfort.

The founder and head of WTIL has a personal connection with Japan.  One of her relatives will be traveling from the US to an area that was safe from the earthquake but is now becoming a relocation area for many quake refugees.  Her relative will be taking quilts to Japan and distributing them to people that need them.  The Foundation is also fundraising to support the cost of the trip.

Please send quilts and/or monetary donations to:
2522-A Old Hwy 99 S
Mt. Vernon, WA  98273

I regularly donate quilts to this organization – recently quilts have been distributed within Washington State, in addition to Mongolia and to the Philippines.  This is a very worthwhile group and I encourage all quilters to participate in this very personal way to bring comfort to some of the displaced people in Japan.  Read more about WTIL and visit their Gallery of Quilts at this link.

I will have pictures tomorrow of the three quilts that I will have ready to box up and send out to WTIL (I’m finishing the binding up on one tonight).
