The (QOV) organization is an amazing one for Canadians to be a part of.
Taken directly from their website, 'they support Canadian Armed Forces members past and present with quilts of comfort, in their time of need.'
A Quilt of Valour™ is a Tribute to a CAF Member
A Quilt of Valour™ is a "hug from the nation" to a CAF Member who serves and makes sacrifices for our country. The quilt standards must reflect the level of gratitude that we want to demonstrate to the recipient. Quilts of Valour™ can be made by individuals, social groups or quilting bees. In all cases we request that the standards we have established are followed to ensure that a high quality symbol of gratitude is presented.
One idea that a member came up with is that up to and on November 11th start working on a Quilt of Valour. Do it by yourself or with some friends and let us know about it. The hashtags to use are #rememberthem #quiltofvalour.
We encourage you to do this on your facebook, twitter or Instagram accounts and use the hashtags above and we will pick it up and repost. Alternately you can email firstname.lastname@example.org any activities you are doing around this.
Let's support our Armed Forces and pay tribute by what we do best - quilting!
