a blanket raffle!

As you know, my husband and I are missionaries living in Georgia. We work for a nonprofit organization called Adventures In Missions who trains and sends thousands of missionaries to the nations yearly.

As missionaries (and also employees of a nonprofit) we raise support as part of our lifestyle. We’re always looking for monthly donors, but with the end of the year comes a desire for more fun and spunk. And since it’s winter, and I’m a yarnaholic with either knitting needles or a crochet hook permanently attached to my hand, we thought Why not raffle off a handmade blanket??

And so we are!

Welcome to Blanket Raffle Off 2015!

Here’s how it works: visit http://andibruinsma.myadventures.org and click on the red Support Me link on the left-hand side. The first ticket is $10, but every ticket after that is $5. So if you’d like your name in the pot only once, donate $10. If you’d like your name in the pot 9 times- donate $100!

I’ll be working on the blanket from now til the end of the year and in January, after the holidays, we’ll draw a name and mail you your lovely new blanket.

Blanket deets: made from navy blue cotton, the blanket will be extremely durable and easily washable. I mostly make blankets with acrylic yarn, but they aren’t as easily washable, and tend to pill. This blanket will be great for year-round use, as it will be warm in the winter and relatively cool in the summer. I’ll post continual video updates of the progress of the blanket and the raffle.
