The 100,000th
Quilt of Valor-and Beyond

"Stitching Beyond the 100,000th Quilt of Valor" is our theme for 2014, emblazoned on this year's official Quilts of Valor lapel pin, proudly worn by many of us.

It is my great pleasure to announce to all of you that as of May 31, 2014, we have awarded 101,034 Quilts of Valor!

Together, let us celebrate all Quilts of Valor Foundation has accomplished as an all-volunteer organization, and in just ten and a half years! You have made a difference in the lives of many veterans and service members, and we all can take pride in reaching this milestone.

Many of you awarded Quilts of Valor during the month of May, which means your quilt may have been the 100,000th quilt. What fun to imagine your recipient may have been wrapped in that special quilt! Whether you awarded a quilt last month or not, each one of you is part of a 10,000-strong volunteer army of toppers, longarmers, and donors who have honored and comforted 101,034 touched by war.

Take a moment to enjoy what we have accomplished together. Then, let's get back to sewing and longarming - we have many more to warriors to wrap in Quilts of Valor.

Thank you for your loving hearts, your talented hands, your generous giving and your dedication to our mission.

Well done,

Susan Gordon, Executive Director
Quilts of Valor Foundation
