Such a simple thing. I decided that I really wanted to be a part of it. Last night I made two blocks:
The blocks will be made into a quilt this weekend (at the guild's spring retreat). I think this quilt is going to be amazing!
And by donating to Red Cross or World Vision, you can earn a chance to win this quilt!!! Here's how (in Laurie's own words):
Now for the fundraising portion of the project, in lieu of selling actual tickets, people can either send me checks made out to the Red Cross, or World Vision (Laurie Gustafson c/o Stray Threads PO Box 881, Woodinville, WA 98072), I will forward them to the charities, and for every $5 donated their name will be added to the drawing. For those that would prefer to donate online, just forward the confirmation of the donation to this address email@example.com and again for every $5 their name will be added to the drawing.
I'm just in awe of how quickly she put all of this together. A project like this is no small thing.
Whether is it through this fundraiser or one of the myriad of other opportunities out there right now, I encourage you to help aid in Japan's recovery efforts. We really can make a difference!
