Canadian Organization for Rare Disorders is proud to be the recipient of this year’s Giroux Sewing Centre’s Quilt for a Cause. Each year, the Giroux Sewing Centre selects an organization and hosts a quilt fundraiser in their honour. Individuals purchase quilt blocks and a dedicated group of volunteers comes together to sew up the beautiful quilts.CORD’s Secretary, Maureen Smith attended the event and delivered a sincere message of gratitude to the volunteers, emphasizing how Quilt for a Cause is not only an important fundraiser for activities that will impact the 1 in 12 Canadians with rare diseases but also in raising awareness about rare diseases.
