Quilts For Kids In Nepal

Quilts For Kids Nepal

Americans can be big-hearted people, judging by our annual charitable donations of roughly a third of a Trillion dollars. 

But some donors need some tangible proof of their largesse. 

Quilts for Kids Nepal provides that, and a way for poor women to make money from their skills. 

Through quilt sales, sponsorships and donations, the group helps educate children, in the hope that they will not follow their families into a lifetime of begging.
