BAMS students working on Love QuiltOn Thurs., Sept. 20, Buzz Aldrin students were treated to a special assembly to learn about the Love Quilt Project, a non-profit charity that uses the power of love to change the lives of vulnerable orphaned South African and American children, many of them affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. On Fri., Sept. 21, all students participated in a schoolwide art project, designing quilt squares that will eventually become donated quilts to be distributed to these children.

 Buzz parents Dagmara and Patrick Wilson, sponsors for the Love Quilt Project, shared their passion for their work in the organization with the school. “If everyone devoted just a small amount of their time to causes that support and help children in need, the world would become more balanced, and a better place for our own children to grow up in,” say the Wilsons.

 The mission of the Love Quilt Project is for American children to design art squares that are eventually transformed and stitched together by volunteer quilters into quilts distributed to children in South Africa’s hardest hit communities.

 Buzz students had the opportunity during their first period to create their individual quilt squares and spent some time talking and thinking about South African and American children who have been affected by the AIDS pandemic. Said Principal Jill Sack, “We are excited to know that our Buzz students’ designs will be traveling to South Africa to be distributed to children in need of some warmth, and will be threaded with messages of hope and love.”
