Quilt of Life

The Quit of Life honors the lives of those who have given the gift of organ, eye, and tissue donation. All donor families are invited to take part in this project by making a quilt square in honor of their loved one. This information is shared along with the invitation to our Donor Remembrance Celebration. If you did not create a quilt square when you received your invitation, it’s never too late. We can always add your loved one’s square to a future quilt.

Please note quilt squares MUST be received by November 20 to be included in the 2019 quilt. Any quilt squares submitted after this date will be included on a future quilt.

If you would like to create a square for a future quilt, you can review these instructions. When you are ready to send a quilt square, please contact our Bridge to Healing team at Info@LifeShareCarolinas.org to find out where to send your square and when the next quilt will be made.
