As mentioned in my previous post, I am auctioning this quilt and all proceeds will go towards relief efforts in Japan. I will ship this quilt to the highest bidder, and your donation will be matched 100% by the company I work for. To make a bid, please leave a comment to this post with your donation amount and a way for me to contact you*. This auction will end on Friday, March 25th at midnight. Donation will be accepted through Paypal (they accept all major credit cards).
Donations will go towards Direct Relief International, International Medical Corps, or UNICEF. If you choose not to participate in this auction, you can click the links above to find alternative ways to donate.
“On March 11 a massive 9.0 earthquake hit northern Japan. The earthquake, one of the largest in the country’s history, triggered a 23-foot tsunami that battered Japan’s coast, killing thousands and sweeping away cars, homes, buildings, and boats.” – Amgen Foundation Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief Program
My mission over the weekend was to finish this quilt so I can auction it off today. Mission accomplished! You can see the making of this quilt on my Quilting in the Rain Facebook page (link to the right).
I’ve never done an auction like this, so I’m crossing my fingers that this will be successful. 🙂 And don’t forget that the highest bidder’s donation will be matched 100%! Thanks in advance to those who participate…every bit helps!
*If you do not feel comfortable leaving your email address in your comment, please send it to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I know how to contact you. Also be sure that I know which bid is yours!
