Here at Stitchin' Heaven, we are on a mission. Our good friend Rob Appell (YouTube personality and Quilting Expert) has made an incredible quilt called "and the Flag was still there." This quilt was made back in 2013 to auction the quilt to raise money for Operation Homefront. That goal has been met, and all the funds have been donated.
Now, in 2022, I think a more meaningful life is intended for this quilt. Rob has been blessed to show the quilt personally at many special events, and it has been incredible to see how people are touched by it. We have recently decided to find a way to raise money for our local East Texas Veterans through an organization called They've Got Your 6. This organization helps Veterans in our community with any needs they might have. This could include clothing, housing, transportation, utilities, and even food.
We believe the message behind this quilt and what it represents should reach a larger audience. Quilting can be an excellent way to relieve stress or keep the mind busy. To reach our goal, we need your help! Please make a donation of any size, and all money raised will go to https://www.theygotyour6foundation.org/ (aside from minimal GoFundMe fees). The funds will be donated monthly directly to https://www.theygotyour6foundation.org/ to ensure that 100% of the money raised is used exclusively to support the local community of Veterans and First Responders in Quitman, Texas.
Please feel free to dedicate your donation to a service member in the comments section at the link below and spread the word via social media channels.
