I made this COVID-19 Pandemic Quilt because the 2020 Pandemic will be known throughout history and I wanted to make something to commemorate the impact on the world it has and will have. I want to take this quilt to every country that has been affected and have it stamped by the Country, like a postage stamp. Furthermore, I would like to have impacted population written on the quilt for each country to serve as a marker on the vast impact this virus has had on the world. I plan to use the funds from this GoFundMe to support the multi-year efforts ensuring the Pandemic Quilts continuous travel around the world and bringing world unity behind this monumental quilt. “We are all in this together and together we are making history”. It only takes a dollar to make a difference and if everyone pitches in a dollar, we can all be a part of the success of this worldly project. Please consider donating today on my GoFundMe that is linked under pandemicquilt.com I plan to use the funds from this to support the multiyear efforts to ensure my Pandemic Quilts continuous travel around the world, visiting each country capitol bringing world unity behind this monumental quilt. I also plan to write a book or article to be published detailing each country Capitol the Quilt visits and share highlights each Country experienced by the Pandemic. I will be also looking for corporate sponsorship to help with logistics as I travel to countries that they have a presence in to be not only a sponsor but partner in this project. When I raise: $15,000 the quilt will travel the United States Capitol’s. $20,000 the quilt will travel all of North America Capitol’s. $30,000 the quilt will travel all of North and South America Capitol’s. $35,000 the quilt will travel North/South America and Australia/New Zealand Capitol’s. $50,000 the quilt will travel North/South America, Australia/ New Zealand, and European countries Capitol’s. $75,000 the quilt will travel North/South America, Australia/ New Zealand, Europe, and Asia Capitol’s. $90,000 the quilt will travel North/South America, Australia/ New Zealand, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East Capitol’s. $120,000 the quilt will travel North/South America, Australia/ New Zealand, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa Capitol’s. *Countries with a United States travel ban will be excluded, Tour Dates are based off of funds received by July 1, 2021. Additional funds might be required for security in some countries. Itinerary is subject to change depending on safety conditions required for each country.
