Sending Love, Support & Hope

How Mission of Love helped the tornado victims of Moore, Oklahoma

Over the years Mission of LOVE has distributed over 10,000 handmade comfort quilts in areas of devastation via tornado’s, earthquakes, war and tsunamis.  These comfort quilts were sent to our Mission of LOVE from complete strangers who responded to our friend and partner, Luana Rubin, owner of eQulter.com.  eQuilter.com is a business on the Internet that sells fabric, quilt material and needed items in order to make these special comfort quilts. When there is destruction from a earthquake or hurricane, Luana will place on her web site www.eQuilter.com a call of compassion to the quilters of the world to respond by making and sending a comfort quilt to Mission of LOVE and in turn, I will open each and every box and repack it in a special bag and we go and distribute them to the people in need.  We have given over 10,000 comfort quilts to the victims of Japan, Katrina, Haiti, Sandy, 911, Pine Ridge Native American Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and the Mayan orphans and cleft palate patients of Guatemala, and now to the tornado victims of Moore, Oklahoma.
 
Quilts donated to the tornado victims of Moore, OklahomaGuatemala DormI would like to share with you a story about ONE child, Christopher.  Christopher was nine years old suffering from melanoma cancer and Christopher was just given a clean bill of health after years of cancer treatment two weeks prior to the tornado.  Christopher was in school protecting two of his classmates and died of a broken back when the school wall came crushing down, his two classmates survived that he was protecting.

We will be returning to help re-build the homes of the Mothers/ teachers who not only lost their child but also lost their home on that day when all hell broke loose in Moore, Oklahoma, only to find out after the tornado that they had lost their insurance because of a previous hail storm a month prior to the tornado and the insurance company never informed the people of Moore and in the night, left town. 

We are seeking donations of money in order to purchase building supplies in Oklahoma and have our Mission of LOVE building team arrive to rebuild together Sacred Homes for those in need.

With sincere gratitude and love,

"Thank you for the beautiful quilts I received today. My daughter loves hers and I am blessed that you made me take one as well. This tornado has been hard for me, since I am not used to being on the receiving end, I am used to being a giver, so it has been hard for me to accept things. But I am blessed by the love we have been shown during this time.
