Action Kivu Fundrasier wrap up

Just a quick post to say thank you all so so much for your support of the fundraiser! Together we raised an amazing $17,570 for Action Kivu. What an incredible thing!


That much money makes a real and lasting impact so thank you, thank you, thank you! Together we’ve really made a difference for some women and children.

All of the winners of the prizes will be contacted within two days.

Action Kivu needs help year round so please think of them and you can learn much more about them on their website.

    A huge thanks to everyone who donated – those of us at Action Kivu couldn’t be more grateful for your support. Without you we couldn’t do the work we’re doing in Congo!

    Congratulations on the great results with this fundraiser. It’s thrilling to think of the sewing education and machines that will be supported through the money we’ve raised together.

    Hey Alissa! I’m wondering if you will post a list of the prize winners. Getting ready to register for QuiltCon and I’m assuming I did not win the 4 day pass…

    THANKS AGAIN for a wonderful and wonderfully successful ACtion Kivu event!
