bee creative charity fundraiser

Today I want to thank those of you who have helped Maureen Russell, of Beautiful Embroidery Designs, to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, as well as increase awareness of CF.  For those that have purchased virtual raffle tickets, by way of donating funds and/or purchase of Maureen’s PDF Mandala templates or her Justin’s Magic Mandala Embroidery Designs – thank you!  And, for those that may be interested in helping, while Maureen will continue year round to raise such funds, the Bee Creative Charity Fundraiser, hosted by QuiltShopGal, will come to a close in a few days. Thus, if you want to purchase virtual raffle tickets, to win prizes (great odds too), you need to do so quickly as such tickets will only be available in March.  To clarify, Maureen will  be giving me a list of those who made such donations in March, I’ll assign virtual raffle tickets, as appropriate, and coordinate a drawing for the 20+ prizes and announce the winners next week!  

I also want to recognize and thank the Sponsors for this event, as they donated amazing prizes:  AurifilMartingale, Dragon Threads, ASF Lighting Solutions/Beam N Read, Fat Quarter Shop, Schiffer Publishing,  The Wooden Bear and Sweet Peas and Angels.

There are three options all are based on a $10 AU (about $7 US) donation where 100% will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Maureen Russell of Beautiful Embroidery Designs is coordinating the fundraising and will provide QuiltShopGal a list of all donations and qualified purchases, for appropriate allocation of virtual raffle tickets, which will be used to randomly select winners of the prizes.

note:  donations and/or purchases need to be completed in March, to qualify for virtual raffle tickets.  But purchases of these Mandala designs will help raise funds for CF year round, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
