The Witherspoon Institute’s 5 year world leadership project: the American Alabaster Quilt for Haiti is at once a memorial to those lost in the Haitian Earthquake in January and a message of hope for the future! The gigantic puzzle quilt (1 football field long) will be created over the next 5 years. As the quilt grows it will be presented at the yearly Haitian American summit.
At the launch on Jan 12, 2011 is a 6am Prayer Breakfast at the United Nations where the first quilt made by Massachusetts’ Sisters in Stitches will be presented. At the 6pm Thanksgiving Dinner in Haiti WIN will present the last piece of the puzzle quilted by Howard University sponsored by the National Organization for the Advancement of Haitians in Washington DC. The middle is left for our work to be done!
