In these trying financial times, it’s been difficult to donate to our favorite charities as we have in the past. With virtual fundraising, we can all give a little toward the bigger goal. Each quilt and fleece blanket Ann Charlotte makes is linked with a major charity.

Virtual tickets are available from Ann Charlotte. Each donor will be assigned a ticket number and be notified by email.

Tickets are $1 each; 6 for $5; 15 for $10; 25 for $20.

PayPal accounts are set up for both Canadian and U.S. participants.

Please Email Ann charlotte at: to order tickets today.

To pick the winner at the end of the offering, Ann Charlotte will contact a donor at random and ask them to pick a number between 1 and whatever the ending number happens to be. Some offerings have a set timeline. Others will be on-going until a generous donation is collected.

Thank you . . . the agencies will appreciate your patience.

If you have a favorite charity you would like to see included in the fundraising efforts, please contact Ann Charlotte. She will try to find the perfect fabric to represent the theme.

Please pass this along to all your contacts and ask them, in turn, to pass it on. Let’s keep this going as long as we can.

Make it fun and set up challenges between family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc.
