DONATE to the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt
Each year The NAMES Project unfolds sections of The Quilt at thousands of places: in high school gymnasiums, community centers, places of worship, art galleries, museums, corporate headquarters, government offices, as well as on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.  Wherever it is displayed, The Quilt provides balm for the painful wounds of grief, pours oil into the waters made turbulent by controversy, opens eyes that refuse to see and enlists every person who experiences it to play a role in stopping the pandemic.  It is difficult to walk away from The Quilt unchanged.  For those to wish to make a donation in honor of a loved one, you will have the option to note this during checkout.
