Afton Jean Charity Giveaway

If you never read another post by me again, then please at least read this one.
 
I’m sure many of you have heard of Kami of No Biggie and about the recent loss of their sweet baby girl Afton Jean Bigler.
Afton was born at 26 weeks and lived for 7 days. Kami was so sweet to share the entire story on her blog.
I can’t even imagine what the Bigler family is going through right now.
All I know is I have wanted to help. I’ve been thinking for several weeks “what can I do?”
 
I finally came up with an idea and I need all of your help to make it happen.
 
Kami’s insurance isn’t going to cover all of the expenses, so I am hoping that we can all help out with those costs with a charity giveaway.
 
It involves 30 yards of Make Life fabric by Moda!!!

That’s about $300 worth of fabric.
 
I would like to raise money to give to the Bigler family.
If you would like to voluntarily contribute to this cause, you may do so by clicking on the donate button below.




Then please leave a comment on this post.
As a way of showing my appreciation, I am going to randomly select one of the commenters to give the 30 yards of Make Life fabric. You may leave a separate comment for every $1 donated to increase your chances of receiving this “THANK YOU GIFT”.
I’m going to leave this opportunity up for 10 days, so until Monday, December 19th @ 8 pm MST.
 
Now I’m going to plead with you.
Please share this giveaway with all of your friends and family.
Even if you don’t want fabric, this could be a great Christmas present to someone who does.
Let’s raise as much as we can to help the Bigler family in this difficult time.
 
Thank you so much!
