Lazies, I just finished surfing the Quilt Pink auction going on at eBay. Oh my goodness, hop over there, see the wonderful quilts up for auction, and place a bid or two to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
I read about the start of the auction, and the story of this event, over at Gina Halladay’s blog Quilter’s Buzz.
Thousands of quilters and quilt shops throughout the world participated in this event sewing over 4000 quilts to help raise money for breast cancer.
One hundred percent of the sale price goes to this non-profit foundation. Their mission statement is:
‘To save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.’
About the Quilt Pink event:
On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2006, more than 1,000 quilt shops all across the globe held Quilt Pink events, attracting thousands and thousands of quilters sharing one common goal – to stitch together quilts in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
American Patchwork & Quilting is proud to announce The Quilt Pink Charity Auction to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
This six-month auction campaign launched April 5, 2007.
It will feature weekly auctions, beginning each Thursday, totaling nearly 4,000 handmade quilts that showcase the talent and hope of quilters to unite in supporting a cure for breast cancer.
Thanks to Gina of Quilter’s Buzz for blogging about this story.
