Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Quilts

I've decided with a lot of thought and research, that we will be donating our quilts to the first responders, police, firemen, etc., of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.  Being an EMT myself, I am saddened by what these men and women are going through now, and will be dealing with for the rest of their lives!  I am in the process of gathering the 200+ names of the men and women who played a part that day, so you can embroidered or applique their name onto their personal quilt. 

We've already donated quilts to people who lost their home to the wildfires in the Western United States this past summer, and helped bring quilts to 325 families who lost their home to Hurricane Sandy.  Because there are so many things being donated to the children (as there should be!!!), I decided to focus on those who risked their lives running into the school that day, not knowing what awaited them.  They are truly heroes!!!

Thank you so much for everything you're doing to help!  I would appreciate your help in spreading the word about what we're doing!

  1. a retired 911 fire/police dispatcher from the Phoenix area and now relocated to the great NW, I love your idea. I set up a FB page awhile back and we sent quilts to Aurora First Responders. We are also working on a very special project for Newtown. Could you Email me so we can perhaps work together? our FB site is:!/pages/Aurora-Colorado-Emergency-Responder-Quilts/401592493230782
