{ Modern } Relief – Give to A Special Cause this Holiday Season

Several weeks ago a friend of mine contacted me with an idea. Heather wanted to organize a charity raffle where several friends would get together to make quilts that would raise money for charity. {Modern} Relief was born shortly thereafter and 18 members have contributed projects to benefit the cause. We hope you would consider giving to others this Holiday season by purchasing a raffle ticket. You’re not only helping those in need as each entry brings you closer to possibly winning a wonderful quilt. Please help spread the word about our cause.

Here are the two quilts I donated that will be given to two lucky WINNERS! They were both made using my Bundles of Joy tutorial and one charm pack each; one in Life’s a Hoot by Adornit and the other in Hushaby by Tula Pink. They are baby quilt size, around 23.5″ x 27″.

Here is some additional information about {Modern} Relief:

{Modern} Relief is a simple concept. We are Modern Quilters uniting through the holiday season by bringing the warmth of our quilts and the warmth of your hearts together for others in need. This season, 2010, we will be supporting World Vision. We hope YOU will join us in taking a stand against hunger by participating in our fundraising raffle. Please let me introduce to you World Vision.

World Vision is leading the effort to end hunger.

In the next seven seconds, another hungry child will die.

World Vision is on the front lines of the fight against hunger. Today — and every day — we’ll distribute nearly 600 metric tons of emergency food aid, nourishing the hungry. We’ll give local farmers the seeds, tools, and training they need to grow their own food and feed their own communities. And we will plead the cause of the hungry in halls of power all over the world.

Please join us in creating a world without hunger — a world in which no child dies for want of nutritious food. This site offers in-depth information on hunger, its causes, and how it can be stopped. You can learn more about key hunger-related issues and share what you discover with friends and family. Use this link to begin your journey.

Please meet the members of this season’s event and view their donations that they have generously provided to this fundraiser raffle.
