Pet Postcards

Pet Postcards!

The first outreach challenge has been issued.  PET POSTCARDS.  

The whole Pet Postcard Fundraising Project is the charge of Pokey Bolton, the director at the Houston Quilt Show.  One her blog, Pokey's Ponderings, she launched the challenge first, last year.  That's right it is an annual fundraising event.  Last year, she put out a call for postcards, hoping to raise a couple thousand dollars.  The Pet Postcard project raised $20,000, last year.   


The money raised is donated to Friends for Life, the fastest growing no-kill shelter, in Houston Texas.
Each postcard is put on display and sold at the Houston Quilt Festival in October.  The cards are sold for $20 a piece.

At the September Meeting, members brought in "what they had so far".  The postcards are due at the October meeting (October 3rd), but our Outreach Chair can take cards after the meeting, though you'll need to email her to arrange a drop-off.  

So far, we have 37.  Seriously.  Our "so far" number is 37!  That would be $740, of all those post cards to sell.  SAMQG is so honored to be able to give to such a wonderful cause.  Keep up the good work!
