It is St Jude fundraising time!
Donate and win! Every $5 donated to St Jude through my campaign earns a ticket “to win”. Each stream is sponsored by a company, brand, or individual. At the end of the stream, all tickets are entered to win the prizes for that day.
The tickets are then good again for my culminating quilt making stream (May 30) when I make a special one of a kind pixelated quilt start to finish and then give it away. So you get 2 chances to win for every $5 you donate!
Please support these sponsors! They have chosen to support an amazing cause even though they are hurting just like the rest of us. If you can't make a purchase or donation, please consider following their social media. This alone shows support to amazing people.
