Thank you for giving us the opportunity to explain Quilts of Valor and how freedom quilts can help our wounded combat warriors/veterans. Now is the time to give back to our servicemembers through freedom quilts.

Quilts of Valor is a non-profit foundation whose goal is to cover ALL physically or psychologically wounded servicemembers with a freedom quilt, honoring them for their sacrifices.

The movement was originally started by Catherine Roberts of Seaford, DE in 2003 but has now spread across the United States and even has an international presence.

Over 5,546 (this figure changes daily) of our men and women have died as a result of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and almost 25 percent of the veterans returning home suffer from
some type of physical or psychological wound. We have plenty of work to do to show our gratitude. Now is the time to get involved and give back to our combat warriors/veterans.

We invite you to join the cause and make an American patchwork quilt for maybe a special warrior/veteran that you may know or one that you don’t know but would like to thank.
