Have you ever looked at a tote, a skirt, a shirt and thought, “I could make that. I think I could make that. … I should learn to sew.”
We’re excited to announce that part of Handmade by Alissa’s annual Action Kivu fundraiser includes a giveaway of a sewing machine. Now’s your time. Donate $75 and you’ll be eligible to win it … AND you’ll partner with the women in eastern Congo learning to stitch a new life through creative work! What could be better?
The fundraiser supports the work of Action Kivu. Your financial partnership directly affects the lives of the women and children we work with through our Congolese partner, ABFEK. Read more about the people you’re partnering with:
Even if you’re not feeling creatively inclined, these giveaways make great gifts! There are so many levels of donations: what will you give today?
Donate $15 and you are eligible to win three quilting books: Block Party, Modern Minimal, &We Love Color. Donate $20 and you’re eligible to win a gorgeous 5 half meter bundle of amazing Echino fabrics. Donate $30 for the chance to pick up Sew Modern‘s beautiful Robert Kaufman Kona fat quarter bundle and a $25 give certificate to their shop.
And for the aforementioned sewing machine to kick-start your creativity, donate $75 for the chance to take home this beauty. It would also be a great gift for a crafty soul in your life.
And for $100, you have the shot at receiving this gorgeous quilt – a cozy throw for when the nights get cold this fall.
All donations are tax deductible in the U.S. and go directly to the work on the ground in Congo. Please consider giving today! Check out all the giveaways at Handmade by Alissa, donate, and tell your friends and communities to help us reach our goal!
If you’d like to connect further with the women and kids of Congo, leave a note in our comment section, and we’ll pass them along for Amani to share!
