Fiber 5K is Today!

Today's the day!

Go donate to Virginia Spiegel's Fiber 5K to Fight Cancer!

It's not a running race (whew!) and the 5K doesn't stand for kilometers... it stands for dollars! As in FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS for the American Cancer Society. Check out this super fun "race" map!

This year donations on the Fiber 5K website will open at 10 am CT on Wednesday, January 15. Every donation gets you entered in a drawing for prizes as each level of fundraising is reached. There are separate prizes for 1K, 2K, 3K, 4K and 5K. See the levels on the map?!

Here are all the prizes for each level. So much wonderfully arty, generous, interesting, fiber goodness!

You'll see that I'm contributing a copy of our book Twelve by Twelve: The International Art Quilt Challenge and a copy of my dvd Contemporary Fabric Collage. I'm at the 4K level. (So if you really want a chance to win this prize, you can watch the donations grow, then make your donation during the 4K time.)

But, you don't really need prizes right? You know someone touched by cancer. You've felt sad, mad, scared and helpless. I have too. You've wondered what to say and how to help. You've heard of people had got some kind of crazy cancer you didn't even know existed. The American Cancer Society knows about all those cancers and they do all they can to help cancer patients in ways you can't even imagine. Plus, they work to cure this terrible disease!

I hope we far exceed Virginia's 5K finish line. Maybe you're reading this after the fundraiser already began and the goal has already been met and the prizes have all been awarded.

Don't let that stop you from donating and supporting Virginia, the cause and everyone who needs help fighting this terrible disease.
