For a good cause

It seems that some things touch everyone's life in one form or another. Family member, friend, friend of a friend and even yourself, Cancer knows no boundaries.

As quilter's we love to give back in many ways whether by making the everlasting treasure of a quilt for someone or just using our time and talent to help those less fortunate. In the true spirit of quilting and giving, mark your calendar for January 15 and join the Fiber 5K Fight Cancer .

Now, you don't have to put on your running shoes and brave the cold. You can join in the fun as part of Fiberart For A Cause's virtual race by helping the cause reach its goal of donating $5,000 to the American Cancer Society. Every dollar donated moves the race 1 meter closer to the goal. Better yet, the more money raised the better your chances of winning some fabulous prizes, including FreeSpirit Fabric!  Drawings will be done at each milestone; at the 1K ($1000) mark, 2K ($2000) mark, etc., plus a Grand Prize drawing at the Finish Line. Simply follow the donation link on January 15, donate and watch the little red shoe on the race route.

According to Race Director, Virginia Spiegel, "Fiberart For A Cause likes to have fun while raising money to fight cancer, so, of course, there are going to be more "race" details revealed as January 15 draws closer. 100% of donations are given directly to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause. Fiberart For A Cause has already donated more than $230,000 to the American Cancer Society thanks to the generosity of fiber artists and patrons."

Thanks for your generous donation of wonderful FreeSpirit Fabric as a Sponsor of the Fiber 5K to Fight Cancer. I hope to see many fabric-lovers "on the track" on January 15.

I'm excited about this! I'm a sponsor too, and also a breast cancer survivor. I can't wait to see that little meter go up and up :-)
