    This is a beautiful quilt! To think it was sitting at Goodwill just waiting for you.

    Very nice. I would have a hard time donating that one. Glad you do donate. I have an adult care facility that I donate to so I know how much it will be appreciated.

    These babies and their mamas have nothing for the babies that is provided by the state prison system, EVERYTHING, clothing, diapers, formula, bedding, etc. is provided for them by donations. When Peggy heard about it, she decided that every baby needs a quilt to grow up with. The quilts that Peggy makes and sends stay with the babies that they are given to, and go home with the babies when their mamas are released from custody. (It's a condition that the prison people agreed to when Peggy offered to send quilts)
    I'm pretty sure that Peggy can use all the help she can get if anyone wants to volunteer or donate!
    I recently saw a program on TLC channel about this called "Babies Behind Bars"
    Who do you contact about donating? Where do you send things to? Can you send gently used clothing or does it have to be new?

    To Peggy - Great job! Absolutely beautiful. These women/babies are blessed to have you helping them.

    I don't know about the used items. I just saw the TLC program last year and I was so touched that I researched on the web, found the prison and contacted them with my proposal of donating quilts to the babies that they could keep forever. I think EVERY baby should have a "blankie" of their own. This is something I just did after watching a TV show. No official charity I contacted or anything like that. PM me and I can give you the email of the woman I am in contact with. Thanks for your interest!
