{ Modern } Relief - Japan

{ modern } relief - japan
Heather of {House} of A La mode is starting up an online quilt raffle in support of the Japanese Relief effort. Here is what she proposes:

{ Modern } Relief is a simple concept. We are Modern Quilters uniting through the devastation in Japan by bringing the warmth of our quilts and the warmth of your hearts together for others in need.
Participation requires one ( finished ) quilt to be donated to create a collaboration of our beautiful art to be raffled off. If you are unable to make a quilt in the desired timeline (which has yet to be decided), you can also help by purchasing said raffle tickets when the Raffle goes live. If you would like to donate a quilt and additionally become an active member in this movement, please let me know and I’ll send you an invite to the private Flickr group.
Thanks for your interest!
I think this is a fabulous idea. The monies raised will go directly to support the Japanese relief effort. If you are a Flickr member, I suggest you check it out. If you don't have time to make a quilt for this effort, please consider buying a raffle ticket to win one of the great quilts that will be donated. More details coming soon!
