Here's how you can help us right now!
Put basic tools directly in the hands of the quilters!
PeaceQuilts wants each of the quilters to have her own "kit" of basic tools and supplies. Some of these items are available in Haiti, and our policy is to purchase everything possible there in order to contribute to the Haitian economy. Other items are only available in the US at this time, but with your help, we can purchase them in bulk, at wholesale prices. Since these necessities are used every work day, throughout the entire year, we purchase only high-quality, professional tools and supplies.
Your donation can get these vital basics into the hands of the quilters, and help them to earn their way out of poverty. Below are some examples of the kinds of supplies your donation will help to purchase. Remember, your gift of any size will make a difference in the lives of these quilters, and is fully tax-deductible.
