The Moina Michael Poppy Project was founded in 2013 by Emily Crews.  After reading the book, The Miracle Flower, Emily was inspired by what she had read and started reaching out to colleagues.  Soon, a small group of like-minded individuals came together and began using their various crafting skills to aid in the mission.  Since then, we have grown from simply crafting poppies to attending festivals, connecting with local historical societies, fundraising for The Independence Fund and much more.  We are growing more and more every day, and are constantly inspired by Moina Michael and all that she did for military families.  We hope you will find the content of this site and our mission inspiring as well.  Come back often as we hope to continue to have new and exciting updates as we embark on this wonderful journey!

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
— Moina Michael
