ORLANDO, Fla. – Fifty quilts from the Quilts for Pulse Project were delivered to Fire Station One in downtown Orlando on Wednesday.
The project was started by Alissa Lapinsky, president of the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild, who wanted to give back to Pulse victims and their families.
The original goal was 102 quilts.
However, Lapinsky received an overwhelming response on Instagram from all across the globe, fromAustralia,Canada and the United Kingdom.
People wanted to help and be a part of this project. So they sent fabric and supplies to help make these quilts a reality.
"I just felt like something needed to be done. As a quilt guild, we can give love by giving quilts,” Lapinsky told News 6 in September.
Twenty-three countries and all 50 states sent donations with enough material to make 1,800 quilts.
She exceeded her goal by 15 times.
