Please now that every effort is made to send out Thank you cards and emails.
All quilts go to BASICS directly,
and are checked in by staff, who are also working with the families, so sometimes
checking in the quilts is a slow process.
So that they can be sure to get you a thank you card sent:
PLEASE include INSIDE the box a
clearly written or typed note with:
and snail mail address & email
and of each of the people names who have made a quilt in that box.
request for a tax donation form request,
if you need it, with the value of your materials used to make the quilt
And send with delivery confirmation.
This helps everyone very much in checking in and recording your beautiful quilts.
Your quilts are so appreciated, loved and respected.
I try to personally take pictures of EVERY single quilt and add them to the Website and
flickr group so you see exactly who is snuggling up in your quilt. As long as the person
who is receiving it allows me to photograph them.
Believe me, Hugs, tears, smiles, are always attached to your beautiful quilts.
It really is a priceless gift you’ve shared.
