A Passionate Plea...

2013 Komen 3-Day - San Diego (60 miles in 3 days to raise
money for funding breast cancer research and public health outreach
 programs, along with breast cancer awareness - we took every step...)
Many of you know how passionate I am about raising funds for breast cancer awareness and education...and most of you know that I am walking 60-miles again this year in Dallas at the 2014 Komen 3-Day event....but did you know you could help me win some money (A LOT OF MONEY) towards my yearly fundraising goal without spending a penny?? Well, it's true! All you have to do is take a minute and vote for my "Pinwheel Party" quilt block design in AccuQuilt's Annual Quilt Block Design contest. That's it - it's super easy - and only takes a few seconds...simply click on one of the links in this post (or on my quilt block below) and then click on "VOTE FOR THIS BLOCK". Currently, my block is in 13th place out of hundreds of entries - and I need to be in the top three to win money for my charity (I have a lot of ground to make up, but I still have hope!) - so please take a couple minutes daily to vote for my quilt block. If each of my blog followers would place a vote(s), I would be in winning position....and I know you are all up for the challenge (I know you are all competitive)! Needleworkers and quilters have proven to me time and time again how generous their hearts are...and I know you all support me. We have until May 27th to ban together and vote - please help me spread the word! You can vote once daily per e-mail would have my sincere gratitude...and you would be helping me make a difference...
Pinwheel Party
I know each and every person reading this post has been touched by breast cancer and I know many of you donate yearly to  help eradicate this dreadful disease...this is just a small way you can help contribute and no money is necessary. Please take a minute to vote for my block...write yourself a note to vote each day through May 27th...and tell your friends - social media is a VERY powerful thing...
