LWR quilt of bricks

“Many Trips Around the World" is the name of the traditional quilt pattern that is formed of brightly colored bricks at Lutheran World Relief's Baltimore headquarters. Each brick — when bought for $500 — pays for shipping 250 real quilts to people in need overseas. So far 1,000 bricks toward the 10,000-brick goal have been given, with the donor name engraved on each before installation. Go to www.lwr.org/quiltplaza for more information. LWR recently earned an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy, which uses as chief criteria the portion of the budget going to program services. In 2002 LWR used 94 percent for programs.
