LYNCHBURG, Va — In this day and age where daycare and private school could easily cost a couple of thousand bucks.

Quilts handmade by a woman in Nepal could fund one child's entire education there.

At $140 the quilts are sold through a non-profit organization called Quilts for Kids in Lynchburg.

"I think they really love the pieces they are beautiful hand stitched quilts but also people know that they are doing some good by purchasing one, so I think we will get a good response to it," said Erin Stover of Riverviews Artspace in Lynchburg.

The quilts are on display and up for sale at the Riverviews Artspace.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday from noon until 5 p.m.
