How can you tell it’s August? It’s the record-breaking heat, the sound of a fan oscillating, and the third annual Action Kivu fundraiser on Handmade by Alissa!
Alissa has once again compiled a great giveaway to benefit the women and children of eastern Congo. If you’re crafty or a costumer, you might want to donate $25 to enter the giveaway of a $50 gift certificate to Sew Modern‘s great online or brick & mortar shop! Plus win a charm pack of super cute Sew Stitchy.
For those of us who can’t stitch in a straight line, check out the gorgeous, finished quilts donated.
Donate $35 and be in the running to win this vibrant, fun baby quilt by Heather Jones. This quilt measures 35″ x 35.″
Donate $100 and you are in the running to win a finished quilt by Elizabeth Hartman from her book, the Practical Guide to Patchwork. This gorgeous quilt is a large lap quilt at 68″ x 68.″
The sewing workshop has already started new classes in Mumosho and Bukavu, focusing on the exquisite skill of embroidery, which is in high demand in Congo. Click here to read about the recent sewing workshop graduation made possible by our generous donors. As we gear up for fall, the graduates of the sewing workshop will sew new uniforms for the vulnerable and orphaned children Action Kivu sends to school. We’re excited to share more photos and stories, but we rely on your support to make this a reality. Help us reach our goal!
Visit Handmade by Alissa to see more of the giveaways, and know that your donations are tax deductible, and 100% goes directly to the work on the ground.
