Will Quilt to Support our Military!

$6,030 of $25k goal

Raised by 36 people in 6 months
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 . However, 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 still raise money for Operation Homefront, 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 Operation Homefront (aside from minimal GoFundMe fees). Once the goal has been met, the quilt will be back in my possession permanently, so that I can continue to tell its story and continue to raise awareness about the mission of Operation Homefront. Please feel free to dedicate your donation to a service member in the comments section, and please spread the word via social media.

2017 is off to a good start for our fund raising and awareness efforts. Was blessed to share the quilt and the story at both the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild and The West Michigan Quilters' Guild this month. Thanks to those great ladies and gentlemen we have added a few hundred more dollars to the total. Please help me share the word so I may hit this goal.
