• Track Your Quilts

Traveling Treasures

Tracking your Quilts and Kits across the globe

Since its inception in 2013, more than 2,280 congregations have used the LWR Quilt & Kit tracker to see where their gifts of love go and who they help. 

Cindy Goshert, from Trinity English Lutheran Church in Ft. Wayne, Ind., is an active member of the LWR Quilters Facebook Group. She posted with joy upon finding out that some of her congregation's quilts went to Peru.

 

This was our first year using [the Tracker] and we are excited to picture who might be receiving the quilts! 

 

The LWR Quilt & Kit Tracker is one way we try to make the world between us a little bit smaller, by connecting the tireless efforts of people who make quilts and assemble kits with the people around the world who receive them with joy and gratitude.

Step Two: Find Your Congregation's Donor ID

Use the following information to find your congregation's Donor ID:

  • Click on "Find our Donor ID"
     
  • Enter your zip code and click on "View Report"
     
  • Your ID number will pop up on a second tab. Please remember to write your ID number down.

NOTE: if your congregation does not appear, please contact LWR and we will add you to the system. It's best to plan ahead to make sure everything is in place when you are ready to print your labels.

Step Three: Create Bar Codes for Your Boxes

In order to accurately track shipments you'll need to print a barcode for each box you wish to follow.

IMPORTANT: You must include all the information for the box in the barcode. If you write in any information later, the scanners at the warehouse will not be able to read the handwritten information.

Step Four: Track How Much You've Donated

Another great feature of the Quilt & Kit Tracker is that you can track how much you've donated since you began using it. To do so, log onto the Tracker portal and click "Our Total Donations." Then, do the following:

  • Clear the area where it says Donor ID and then place your ID number there.
     
  • For the date range, enter the date you first started using the Tracker (you can estimate) and the current day. You can also adjust this range to narrow your results. Be sure to include the year.
     
  • Once you've entered your dates, click "View Report." You can also keep this report to share!

NOTE: your gifts will not appear online until they are scanned at the warehouse in Maryland or Minnesota.

Step Five: Tracking Where Your Donations Went

To track where your donations travel in the world, log in to the Track portal and click "Where Our Quilts and Kits Have Gone." Then, do the following:

  • Clear the area where it says Donor ID and place your ID there
     
  • Enter the range of dates you're interested in seeing. If you want to see just where the last batch of donations went, make the range narrower (the date of your Ingathering and today's date, for example.) If you want to see where your quilts and kits have traveled since you started using the Tracker, then enter an earlier start date. Be sure to include the year.
     
  • Once you've entered your dates and click View Report you should see where your quilts and kits have gone! You can also print or save this report so you can share it with everyone in your community!
