Japan Quake Appeal - Raffle

I have to say that its been hard trying to concentrate on anything knowing what is going on over in Japan and after reading Jo's post as mentioned yesterday I just had to join in to try and help raise some funds.

I decided to hold a raffle and my contribution is this lovely bunch of goodies pictured above. The prize consists of:

Limited edition Bagladee shoulder bag, complete with corsage
(not pictured but will be finished in time for posting)
Felt pencil case, including a ruler, eraser, pencil sharpener and coloured pencils
Felt brooch
Felt purse
And a mini felt pin cushion

A bit of a fab prize don't you think? Well I thought because it is for such a deserving cause then it deserved to be a pretty special prize. Now this little lot would cost over £50 to buy from my shop but all I am asking is that you buy a raffle ticket!! Sound fair?
Here's how to enter:
  • Go over to (United Kingdom) or (USA) and make a donation. (if you need help with donating then read Jo's post here).

  • Every £3 ($5) donation buys you 1 raffle ticket. You can enter as many times as you like.

  • Once you have made your donation, come back to this post and leave me a comment telling me how much you have donated (how many tickets you have bought) and your receipt number (please make sure you write down your receipt number as I will ask you to verify this as your entry).

  • Make sure you leave your email address in your comment (if you are worried about spam you can write it as name(at)hotmail(dot)com.

  • If you make a mistake or need to change your comment then please delete your first comment and rewrite it.

  • The raffle is open to everyone as I am posting worldwide (I will be paying the cost of postage as part of my donation).

  • The raffle will close at 12 noon (GMT) on 26th March and the winner will be drawn at random and notified by email.

  • Please note :: this raffle is being held on this blog, in cooperation with A Bit of this and a bit of that. We are in no way affiliated with Global Giving, that's just our chosen method of getting funds safely to the affected area.

Jo will be posting a list of links to all the blogs taking part (each requiring separate donations) so if this little lot doesn't tickle your fancy then take a look at the other prizes on offer. We all want to raise as much as we can to help the people of Japan so what ever you can donate is very much appreciated. Please spread the word via facebook, twitter, friends and family and blogs.

Thank you :)

P.S. I am also donating any monies from my Fabric De-stash to Global Giving so have a peek and see if any take your fancy.


  1. Hello. I jumped here from Jojoebi's blog. You raffle is all beautiful and I have just made a $50 donation. The invoice number is R273995-GC756211-CBcb01.

    I have donated in various other ways as living here it seems to be filling our every second of every day at the moment. I am far enough South to not be physically affected though.

    Good luck with your raffle. It's nice to see the craft community getting together. Also nice that a donation might have something at the end of it:)
