Olympic Quilt

Hannah Teter, U.S. snowboarder and 2006 gold medalist, is sleeping every night at the Olympic Village under a quilt created by Amp Energy Juice (part of PepsiCo) that features Teter and images from the village of Kirindon, Kenya. Teter, who helped design the quilt, started a charity dedicated to the village, and raises money through a maple syrup business (Hannah's Gold Vermont maple syrup) to help the village with water filtration, a sanitation system, and housing.

Hannah plans to auction the quilt after the Winter Games to raise more money for the village. Read the story at USA Today,

  1. Wow - that is so cool. I was aware of some of her efforts but unaware of the quilt. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing!
