I'm thankful

I'm thankful for many things today {and everyday}...

I'm especially thankful today that I get to spend Thanksgiving eating a wonderful meal with my family. Unfortunately not everyone is that lucky. If you haven't had a chance to read about our Modern Relief efforts yet... please take a few minutes to do so.

In just a few days time we have already raised $3,500 to donate to World Vision. You can help towards our goal by making a small donation. Thank you for your support & I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

fundraising ideas

{ 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.
