Blanket America’s debut on QVC is scheduled on the 28th at 6pm and the 29th at 7am and 2pm of December. Customers and QVC viewers alike will get a good glimpse at the Blanket America Patchwork Heritage Quilt on air, which will help increase sales and at the same time grow the newly formed charitable organization significantly. If successful, there will be more airtime for Blanket America on QVC in the future. Blanket America (http://www.blanketamerica.com), in partnership with Gifts in Kind International, is a new charitable organization founded on the goal to help the needy by donating one blanket for every Patchwork Heritage quilt sold. The organization has made it its goal to help over a million American families during the holidays and is set to increasing that number throughout the year 2010. With a creative Facebook page and an active Twitter account, Blanket America is able to gather supporters from all over the country to share stories, show support, and encourage others to join in the cause, Amazon.com, JC Penney, and other companies being some of its strongest supporters. Blanket America’s main product, the Patchwork Heritage Quilt, was inspired by President Barack Obama’s speech of unity and strength with the actual inaugural speech printed on a Lady Liberty background. This quilt is composed of two different designs, the front showing a combination of 13 unique designs and fabrics, which represent the 13 original American colonies, and the back which features the president’s message. It is typically used as either a tapestry for the patriotic or a decorative addition to the bedroom. The price of the quilt ranges from $59.99 to $99.99 with several promos and activities to compliment the project. Partnering with Blanket America is Gifts in Kind International, which is recognized as one of the best charities in the country by Forbes Magazine. Having done many charitable projects for over 150,000 communities, it has shown its support for the Buy 1, Give 1 model of Blanket America as well as for several other companies by assisting in the distribution of goods, services, and funds to the hundreds of needy citizens all over the country. Truly it is a blessing that Blanket America and Gifts in Kind have joined together in making this cause a reality. Join in this meaningful cause by tuning in to QVC at 6pm on December 28 and 7am and 2pm on December 29. The Patchwork Heritage Quilt is also available from QVC at http://www.qvc.com.
