As children are admitted for surgery, they are each given a lovingly handcrafted, colorful quilt. It will comfort them from pre-op, into the operating room and recovery, then home. Quilters around the US and Canada donate them through Rotaplast. Organizations include the Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association, Wrap-a-Smile by International Quilters, a project of the Rotary Club of Wells, Maine and quilters and Rotarians of Washington, Idaho and British Columbia.
