Online PR News – 10-November-2009 – – On January 20th, 2009, President Obama delivered his first speech as President of our country. His words were inspiring to many and were the inspiration for the Blanket America Program, the goal of which is to provide blankets to the needy this year.
To accomplish this, Blanket America is offering a heritage patchwork quilt, made of patchwork fabric in remembrance of the words of the Inaugural Address. The words of this historic speech are featured on the reverse side of the quilt, including the reference to our “patchwork heritage” as one of the unique features of America.
By making these quilts available at an affordable price, Americans are encouraged to participate in the program. With each purchase of the Patchwork Heritage Quilt a donation will be made through Gifts In Kind International of a warm blanket to a needy family. This simple act of generosity benefits us all, and the keepsake quilt will be a lovely asset to your home.
This program highlights the American spirit of looking out for our own. Women through the years have used quilts to make a difference for others, providing warmth and beauty to the homes of others. The direct one to one benefit of this program makes it a worthwhile and recognizable investment to make a difference immediately in the lives of our less fortunate neighbors.
www.blanketamerica.com will be the website to support the information and community stories about the program and the impact it will have. With the lofty goal of providing one million blankets this year, each person’s involvement and input will be invaluable.
The quilt is constructed of patchwork fabric pieces in a traditional pattern on the front, with matching pillows and shams available. On the back of the quilt the words of the inaugural speech are preserved as the inspiration for the program.
