Modern Relief Japan :: Week 1

Please join me as I'm participating in another round of Modern Relief.
Thank you so much for donating to this wonderful fund raiser!

Welcome! With the recent devastating earthquakes and tsunami in Japan we knew immediately another round of Modern Relief needed to happen to help raise funds to donate to those in need. If you're new to Modern Relief, our idea is simple. Beautiful, handmade, modern quilts have been donated to our cause - and you all have a chance to win one! For every $10 you donate you receive one ticket to the quilt raffle - a chance to win any of the amazing quilts that have been crafted especially for us. 100% of the money raised will be donated to Mercy Corps, who has been instrumental in getting the supplies and emergency help to the people and places in Japan that need it most.

Every Monday for the next six weeks a new set of quilts up for raffle will be featured here. The response to the call for quilts for this round was huge - we have over 75 gorgeous quilts that you have a chance to win. So give as much as you can - give often - and help us spread the word! The week of May 16th, 2011 we will post the final amount of money raised and given to Mercy Corps, as well as hold the drawing and post the winners of the quilts.  **Read all the details and how the raffle works here.

Make sure to visit the links of each of the individual bloggers that have donated quilts. Many of them will have lots more pictures of the quilts up for raffle so you can see these beautiful creations up close.

What a fabulous idea! I've never owned a handmade quilt before so I will definitely donate soon to this great cause for a chance to actually win one! Fingers crossed!
