I have a question about donating quilts or the labor put into them
Ok so i love making charity quilts, but i had a very bad experience when i first started quilting where i was used in return for a thank you for about two years and when i got somebody to help that charity so i can attend to other family matters the new person got a receipt for the tax right from the first time....i was in shock and hurt to the core...
I got to know quilts for kids and i requested a kit to make and quilt and i matched with a quilt of my own (that was last year but can't remember when) and i didnt get any tax receipt.
Today i learned about the quilts beyond border?? and their website clearly states that they are tax deductible....so i am confused and need as much info on this as i can.
I love helping but after my first experience I will never be used again. I would rather knock on a poor person's door and give them a quilt than mailing randomly and not knowing what is going to happen to the quilt and i have heard numerous stories about people bringing quilts to long armers as they are going to charity and end up in their homes. I am saying that is to generalized but i really want to avoid that.
Pls help me stop my confusion ):
