259: {Modern} Relief…cause the world needs it….

Hey there!!  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend!  We did here at the Blue Nickel.  Went to my parents on the big day, and then worked Friday and part of Saturday at the DayJob (it’s retail…so Black Friday and all you know) ….But I know you blog-reader types are all a gaga over the Cyber Monday deals, aren’t you??  
Well while you are there at home in your PJ’s shopping your hearts out,  please consider dropping a ten-spot or more for Modern Relief.   See below for the details, but I just wanted to shout out to the instigator of this great event.  Heather, thanks so much for reminding us all that the world needs all the help it can get, and we can all do our part.   I missed the party on this one for donating a quilt, but Heather let me join up for the next one, so I will have one or two quilts that you could win while you are helping out others ….what a win, win situation, huh?? 
Now why have I told you to buy a raffle ticket too?  It is not helping my chances by any means, but I just am letting you know, cause I love peeps in general, you and the folks being helped by the money raised….but you don’t have much time to buy your ticket, the deadline is December 1st!!   That and there are like 20 quilts to win if I counted right…
Best of  luck to you and to me!! 

I will be back later in the week to share some more….I have been busy in the studio….let’s hope I really get something posted….If you want to get the “latest” always on my antics, follow me on Twitter.   Then if you want to talk direct, you can alway DM me….although if I am particularly chatty on Twitter, the work in the studio is directly hampered by the same chatter (in adverse ways of course) ….Happy Cyber Sunday/Monday to all and to all a good nite!

{ 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.
