{ Modern } Relief

i am very proud to announce a little project that myself and my friends have been working on... even in times of loss ( for my family anyways ) it brings a deep sense of joy, to help others. i never want to forget how each one of us can make a difference in this world and in someone else’s life. to my American friends... Happy Thanksgiving! ;) "To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world"
{ 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.

  2. This is wonderful, Heather! World Vision is a great organization and wonderful to work with. Molly and I have been sponsoring a little cutie named Jose, who is now three-years-old. I hope all of your readers will consider entering the raffle and/or making a commitment to support a child long term.

  10. This is a great idea! World Vision is a wonderful organisation. We've sponsored a girl in Malawi for the past 6 years and it is so great to write back and forth to her. We gave up cable TV to use the money to sponsor her instead and it is so worth it!!!
