With the cancellation of Quilt Canada, the plans for selling over 1000 postcards have had a bit of a re-design.
Led by Cindy Scraba, the Challenge Coordinator and Sponsor, the postcard team mounted an on-line FaceBook auction in late August.
Our on-line postcard fundraiser was a huge success, with over $7000 raised for the Glenrose Hospital Pediatric Brain Injury Unit. Bidders were generous, and those who participated were excited about the cards they won. Some (like my beloved sister) were exceedingly good at swooping in at the last moment to win preferred cards!
Although we sold many cards, there are well over 900 left in my spare bedroom. So, we’re going to give it another go! Mark your calendars for November 5-7, 2020 (Thursday through Saturday) when we will be hosting our Pre-Christmas Postcard Pop- Up.
On Facebook, search for Postcard Challenge Fundraiser and join in the fun. The format will be “blitz” style. If you like the card and it’s available, comment that you will buy
it for $25 and it will be yours. We will also have “twin packs” (2 for $25) and “surprise bundles” (5 for $25).
This is a great way to get some wee works of art and it supports a great cause. Let your friends and family know so they can join in the fun too!
