{Modern} Relief

I'd like to tell you about a very special project that I am participating in this holiday season. It's called {Modern} Relief, and it's an online raffle for quilts made by 18 quilt bloggers, with all proceeds going to a very worthy cause. {Modern} Relief was conceived and organized by my friend Heather, and I am so very honored to be a part of something so special and worthwhile. As we enter the holiday season, it's important to remember the people in the world who aren't as fortunate as we are.

Here's the quilt that I will be sending to one lucky winner. It's a 40" square quilt made from the Glam Garden line by Robert Kaufman. It would be perfect as a baby's quilt, or maybe a wall hanging. And yes, it's been quilted since this picture was taken and will be bound by the time a winner is selected!

Here's more about {Modern} Relief, taken straight from Heather's blog post:


{ 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.
