To fund work that allows families to escape hunger and poverty, Lutheran World Relief came up with a symbolic community quilt. With 12 squares that represent areas of LWR work, such as peace or children, the quilt is symbolic (unless a group decides to sew squares as a visual aid to help raise money). Gift squares, ranging from $40 to $5,000, can be purchased. For more information, call LWR at (800) LWR-LWR2 or visit www.quilt.lwr.org.
