One more bit of great news to pass on.
The Ovarian Cancer quilt Can You Teal the Love went into the fundraising event last month. They had 4 raffle items, and between them the 4 items raised AU$7,657. That means if you average the total across the 4 prizes, it raised nearly $2,000.
The entire event (including dinner tickets, etc) raised AU$43,657.00, a stunning result.
Well done, everyone. Well done. The work of our hands makes a difference. Quilts may never set the world on fire, but they help towards making hard, painful or tragic personal stories better. To those who participated, thank you a thousand times. To those who encouraged from the sidelines, the same. To those who contributed in other ways, you are all stars.
And we’ll do it all again next year, and the year after, and the year after that, until I get too old or decrepit to lift a needle or rotary cutter.
Let me know if you’d like to help next time by contributing a block or two, or providing the means to purchase fabric for these fundraising quilt. Leave a comment, or you can email me using the details on the Contact Me page.
I love a good news story!
