The Promise Walk Team is pleased to announce that the memory quilt is back! In 2007 and 2008 foundation members came together to create memory quilts to benefit the Preeclampsia Foundation. Foundation members were asked to design and create a quilt square to honor a loved one lost to preeclampsia or to honor a survivor. The past quilts have been auctioned off at the yearly Saving Grace – A Night of Hope 2007-08 events and were a huge success. The quilts not only raised awareness and research funds, but provided an emotional outlet for family members to spotlight their loved ones. The Promise Walk wants to give those who wish to participate a chance to remember and honor their sons, daughters, mothers, aunts, and sisters. The new quilt will be displayed at walks around the country during the 2011 walk season.
If you would like participate, email Rosemary Jorden at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please include in your email your full name and mailing address - and word QUILT in the subject line. A pre-cut fabric square, written instructions, general guidelines, and a return envelope will be mailed to you. There is a strictly enforced deadline of March 1, 2011 to return the square to ensure enough time for the quilt to be assembled. If you have questions, feel free to post here or email me.
