Quilting Bee Blitz *update*

12 hours to go...only $2823 left to raise...we can do this one dollar at a time!

48 Hours starting...NOW!

The goal:  raise the rest of the funds Megan needs to go get Sophia in 8 days and to fill this quilt with the names of everyone who has shared love and helped bring her home.

Megan's financial need stands at $3143, lets see how fast we can make that number shrink!

How we're going to do it:  By remembering that every single dollar that each person contributes COUNTS!  We have a donor who is going to match EVERY donation made with a $5 donation of their own.  Our love will multiply.  In addition for every leaf (and there are 50 left) that is claimed I will also donate another $3.  We may not be rich, but we can all pitch and finish this quilt.

Details:  Every single donor goes on the quilt.  Every $15 donation gets a leaf on the tree.  Be sure that you leave your name with your donation or in the comments so we can add you on.  I will try and post pictures as I get the names but I'm honestly hoping that I won't be able to keep up :)  Donations can be made to Megan's chip-in above or via Reese's Rainbow (please be aware that the amount showing there is NOT what she has, there is actually only a couple hundred in her fsp) on the side bar if you wish them to be tax deductible.

One last thing...please pray for God to bless our efforts on behalf of this little orphan girl who hasn't know the love of a family for over four years.

An Old Fashioned Quilting Bee Blitz for Sophia

Many hearts make light work.
Quilting bees used to be standard fare.  Many women working together could make something beautiful that would help someone in need stay warm in just a day.  What we have is a need that can be met if we all band together and do our small part.  This lovely mama Megan Meier
is supposed to go and pick up her sweet daughter Sophia from her orphanage in Eastern Europe in 11 days.  Standing between them is $3143.  So here is what we are going to do.  We are going to do a quilting bee blitz for 48 hours.  From 8 p.m. pacific time Friday September 14 until 8 p.m. pacific time Sunday September 16.  Every donation gets your name on Sophia's Quilt of Love.  
We have a donor who is going to match any donation within that 48 hours with a $5 donation.  Every single donation counts.  Every single person makes a difference.  In addition to this, there are 50 leaves remaining on the quilt.  
Every donation of $15 gets your name on a leaf.  And for every leaf that I embroider a name on I will add another $3 donation.  Together we can finish this quilt and unite Megan and Sophia.  Its not hard if we all do a little.
