Online PR News – 24-December-2009 – – On the night of January 20, 2009, President Barak Obama gave an inspirational first speech as our country's new leader. In his speech, Obama highlighted that our country has a patchwork heritage that is a strength, not a weakness. Tired of America being divided by outdated and unfair racial, ethnic and political lines, many took his words to be a call to action. That's why Mesh Gelman, a bed, bath and window covering design business owner from Manhattan designed one of America's most talked about new charitable projects.

Gelman and his team have created the Patchwork Heritage quilt in order to help dissolve outdated and restrictive boundaries and to help those Americans most in need throughout the next year. The Blanket America project, with the help of Gifts in Kind International, has set a goal to donate and distribute 1 million warm, new blankets to those in need.

The quilt brims with patriotic symbolism. On its face, 13 unique patches representing the 13 original colonies of the New World have been sewn together with the thread of unity. The fabric colors used are various attractive shades of reds, whites and blues, much like the United States Flag. On the reverse of the quilt, lady liberty stands resolute in the background, while the January 20, 2009 Presidential inaugural address graces the fabrics foreground.

To complement and complete the look, blanket America has also designed matching decorative pillows and shams. Prices for the quilts are $59.99 for the throw size, $79.99 for the full/queen size and $99.99 for the king size. Shams are priced at $29.99 and decorative pillows at $19.99.

When compared to other quilt collections, the Patchwork Heritage quilt collection is a bargain. Supporters will get more than just a commemorative quilt with their purchase. They will receive two free gifts. The Blanket America Booklet is comprised of 14 informative pages containing the quilts history and the goals of the project. The Blanket America Awareness car magnate is a great way to show patriotic pride and support of the project.

To keep supporters informed, the Blanket America website will give customers the chance to share thoughts and wishes related to the project. From their homepage, news about new participating retailers is posted. Information about each state's goal and progress is also made available by simply running the mouse over a certain state.
