Gifts to the Quilt & Kit Shipping Fund of $500 or more may be commemorated with an engraved brick on the Good Samaritan Quilt Plaza at LWR Headquarters in Baltimore. The engraved and colorful bricks make a pattern called “Many Trips Around the World” and represent the distribution of millions of quilts and kits to our neighbors around the world.
A great way to honor someone is to sponsor a brick in his or her name.
- Honor your church’s quilting ministry or a faithful leader in your congregation.
- Memorialize a longtime quilter or other special person.
- Commemorate a special event such as a birth, marriage or anniversary.
