Love for Christchurch

As most of you will know, 2 weeks ago tomorrow, on the 22nd of February, Christchurch city in my home country New Zealand, was hit with a devastating and fatal earthquake. With the city center in ruins and the lives of over 200 lost, it is love, support and strength that we all need to get through this.

While there is nothing most of us can physically to do help the thousands effected, the one thing we can do is donate to the relief fund. I don't have a lot of $$$ to give, but what i do have is time and supplies and blog followers to call out to.

As well as donating 20% of all proceeds from last weeks Red Riding Hood Yarn update, i have been busy knitting a shawl to raffle off and raise more money to Donate to the cause.

I present to you "Love for Christchurch"

Love For Christchurch, is a "Connie" shawl designed by Morag of Vintage Purls .
It is an exclusive yarn Club pattern so not available to purchase until next summer.

It is knit in deliciously soft Touch Yarns wool and works well as a scarf as well as a shawl.
It comes from a smoke and pet free home as is knitted with the utmost love.

I am going to raffle it off with 100% of the money raised going to the Red Cross earthquake appeal. I am happy to send anywhere in the world.

Tickets are $5 each and i will accept bank deposit and paypal payments.

my bank account # is 03 0195 0466088 001
Name H Gordon

If you would like to pay by paypal then leave me your email address and how many tickets and i will send you an invoice.

Please comment below with your name, how many tickets you have bought and a way to contact you if you win :)

I will draw the raffle at 1pm Monday the 14th, so you have a week to enter.
