Here's a novel idea:
I am asking you if you would be willing to make a donation (even $5 works) towards my son's fundraising efforts for a bike ride for MS in September. It's a 2 day 125 mile ride from San Francisco to Sonoma. He needs to raise money in order to qualify so any amounts are appreciated.
His name is Benjamin Nordstrom. Here is his link to the MS Ride.
If you donate any amount, I am going to put your name into a drawing for a free box of scraps! I will STUFF a priority mail box (the small one will hold a LOT of fabric) and send it off to one winner for every 10 donations!!!
How's that for a deal??? I hope you will feel generous enough to make a donation towards this very important fundraising efforts. We are grateful for any amount, however small!!
Thanks very much for considering.
Love to you all,
You must have a lot of scraps, Randy!ReplyDelete
Janet, you have NO idea!!Delete
Sure I'll donate :0), I'm happy to have a way to show my thanks for the manyReplyDelete
hours you have spent doing the sow along blocks for us. I have really
enjoyed making the blocks and look forward to your next one with baskets.....
hey if I start that rumor will it work on you?
Thanks so very much, Kim! Not sure about the baskets, though...Delete
Your son is amazing. I have MS and my son has run the London Marathon twice now in aid of two different MS Societies here in England, though I am originally from NJ - I have lived here most of my life.ReplyDelete
Patti, you can appreciate how important MS research is from your own personal story. I hope you are living well nevertheless.Delete
I've sent in a donation. Thank you for raising the money for your son and making it a fun contest for us all. What a great idea!ReplyDelete
Thanks so very much, Michele! I really appreciate it.Delete
Do NOT put my name in the hat! I just sent my scraps off to someone. So happy to clear them out! lolReplyDelete
How much does he need to raise?
I have already sent in a donation to support MS research in my HS friends name as she has this disease.ReplyDelete
Thank you to Benjamin for his help in raising awareness of MS. I have MS and am happy to donate. Ummmm...i think those scraps would make me feel a lot better!ReplyDelete
