Quilt to Support our Military and First Responders

Hello, my name is Rob Appell and I am a quilt maker on a mission! I created this quilt, "and the Flag was still there," back in 2013 with a goal to auction the quilt and raise money for Operation Homefront . That goal has been met, all of the funds have been donated. 

It is now 2022 - I think a bigger life is intended for this quilt. I have been blessed to show the quilt personally at many special events and it is incredible to see how people are touched by it. So, I've set out to find a way to raise money for https://www.theygotyour6foundation.org/ but in a way that can affect people's lives the way this quilt has mine. That is why I'm asking for 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). As the funds come in they will be donated directly to https://www.theygotyour6foundation.org/ on a monthly basis to ensure that 100% of the money raised is used directly 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, and please spread the word via social media.
