Winners & an Action Kivu Fundraiser Update

on August 30 | in Contests & Giveaways, Sew Good (Charity Sewing) | by | with 3 Comments

Did you see that Alissa, with your help, surpassed the Action Kivu Fundraiser goal with a total of $10,510 in donations?! $7500 will support the Action Kivu sewing workshop and the rest will send Congolese children to school. It’s a powerful example of compassion and action making a very real difference in the lives of so many. Congratulations to the Free Fabric Friday winners, selected randomly from all of the comments at Handmade by Alissa this weekend:

Shannon (csharri), Kate (katiecdavies), Lorena (lorepuckett), Tara (pryortara), Michelle (mkitto59), Melanie (thurbs8), Maddie (maddie6), April (aefdonner), Jennifer (luvbnamommy), Ashley (ashleyraine)

Alissa offers information on how you can continue to help women and children in eastern Congo on her blog today, so be sure to check it out.

We also have Back to School Pattern winners today. Congratulations!

    As a person who rarely wins anything, you cannot imagine my excitement when I won, not only on the first time I entered, but also the pattern I have been looking at all week! Can’t wait to make this tunic for my daughter and all my nieces!

  2. I’m so excited to be one of the winners! I have already picked out my fabric and I cannot wait to receive it! Thanks, SewMama!
