Children Covering America announced a national campaign, "Children Covering America.” This program is geared toward helping children heal by allowing them to creatively express their feelings over recent world events by designing quilts. The resulting quilts will be donated to numerous recipients.
Children Covering America is hoping to have 10,000 quilts to send to companies and families that lost co-workers and family members in the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks.  It’s a wonderful school project and a great way for kids to get involved.
