Raffle Quilt Needs Help to Reach $1000 Goal

We're in the last week or so of this quilt raffle and have $455 raised. Our goal was $1000.

I know there have been some problems with the ALS Association site where you are directed to go to buy tickets. If you have experienced problems, or were unable to donate, please consider sending your donation by mail or by phone. I know you are tapped for all kinds of donations, we are as well. And we so try to donate or promote every cause that quilters support. This time I'm on the other side, asking for support and I'm not comfortable in this position. But I do believe in this organization. The people have given us hope, they are caring, and most of all they have helped us find our way through the new world for us of living with disabilities and finding ways and equipment to give Derrol quality of life. ALS Association provides patient support, advocacy and fund research in one of the best run organizations with minimal administration costs.

I so appreciate your support -- and I hope you take home a lovingly made quilt to give you comfort.

Here is the information.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. I hope you will consider purchasing the raffle tickets and helping us fund research that will help save lives from this disease that has 100 percent mortality. There is no cure.
