Here are the stats that I could find for Layers of Hope - Quilting 911 2013.
- You contributed to 72 quilts for the Granite Mountain Hotshot families and postage to mail all of those off. Amazing Ladies!! I would say Ladies and Gents, but I have yet to have a quilting gent step up!
- An unknown number of quilts were sent to the folks in Oklahoma who endured not one but two tornadoes. Not everyone who steps up lets me know how many they sent.
- We sent several to dispatchers in West, TX after the explosion.
- I personally received several boxes of fabric, completed quilts that needed quilting, thread, quilt blocks and even batting!
- We raised $172 to get the logo and website up and running
- One quilt shop owner set aside monies to help quilters with shipping costs and sent out around $60 not to mention some fabric for the quilter as well.
- I received around $100 for shipping costs and that was a huge blessing to my husband who picks up the slack when my paycheck runs out.
- You shared a bit of yourself with someone else going through a difficult situation and that is so awesome, I can't begin to thank you for making my job as founder so much easier to do.
- I received several quilts to put on the shelf for future needs, but by the time they arrived, the future needs were here.
So for 2014 being fresh and new, I am asking for (you guessed it), more quilts for all sizes of people so I can fill the shelf and I am asking for prayers to be able to get into a position to purchase a used RV where I can go and hand deliver quilts or even make them on scene during a disaster.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH, LETS MAKE 2014 A GREAT YEAR!
