Right now there are about 35 million Americans living in poverty. Every day we hear more and more stories of those in desperate need of help. It is undeniable that we as a nation are traveling an incredibly difficult road to economic recovery. But, with strength, perseverance, ingenuity, unity and hope, we as a nation will prevail. We can come through these hard times smarter, stronger and more united than ever before.

Nowhere else in the world have people of so many backgrounds, races, and origins come together to form such a patriotic, diversified and caring nation. In the words of our president, America has a "Patchwork Heritage." From the Great Depression to the Great Recession, the recent history of our great nation has shown us again and again that Americans are a strong and varied people.

Many of us are becoming more impressed each day by how well our country has unified during these hard times to help our brothers and sisters in need. Our media tells us every day of the good deeds being undertaken by so many volunteers throughout our land. Many of us are seeing how much our small actions add up to big results for those in need. But the fight is not over. We must persevere in our mission to lend a helping hand.

With the cold winter months just beginning, many of the 35 million Americans living in poverty are in desperate need of warmth. That is why Blanket America is celebrating our great nations' Patchwork Heritage by vowing to provide 1,000,000 blankets to those in need this year.

You can help reach this goal by purchasing the patriotic Patchwork Heritage Quilt. With your purchase of one quilt, you are ensuring the donation of a warm blanket to the needy through the combined efforts of Blanket America and Gifts in Kind. As you have all witnessed through acts of volunteerism, we have, are and will make this land a better place by uniting to make a difference.

With the purchase of this blanket of warmth, you are receiving a quilt comprised of 13 different fabrics representing our original 13 colonies on the front. On the reverse is the entire Presidential inaugural speech, highlighting the words "patchwork heritage." The colorful and tasteful Heirloom Quilt is available in three sizes: Throw 60"x70", Full/Queen Quilt 90"x90" and King Quilt 104"x90".
