THE QUILT OF MANY HUGS PROJECT

Postby Mumsey » Wed Oct 10, 2007 4:49 pm

Recently a number of fans have approached Gabit Events to ask how they too can help with raising awareness and funds for Hearing Dogs even though they are not be able to come to Amanda’s next appearance at AT3 in May 2008.

A site has therefore been set up with the aim of raising enough money to sponsor another hearing dog in Amanda’s name,in addition to any fund raising activities for dogs at AT3 itself. It is open to anyone who would like to support the charity so please feel free to be generous.
As well as being able to leave a personal message when you donate, we are also inviting you to send a very special message for Amanda by contributing some fabric towards The Quilt of Many Hugs – a special gift to Amanda to show how much she means to us all.

The quilt will then be presented to Amanda on stage at the AT3 Event as a big collective hug from her many fans around the world.

For further information go to
www.justgiving.com/gabitquilt07

For those of you who have already sent your fabric, details are also here for you to make your donations to the charity.

Many thanks for your support

Just a little update on the quilt...

Mumsey has caused quite a stir in the post office when collecting all
your packages. the stamps from al over the world have had the posties
drooling!!! I have had over 100 pieces of fabric donated to the cause
which is absolutely fantastic. I can't thank you all enough. I have
re-designed the quilt slightly to take account of all the fabric and
it's gonna be a big'un!!

I don't seem to have everyone's email addresses so, If you have donated
fabric, and haven't already done so, please can you confirm the name you
want on the quilt and it's correct spelling. Messages should be sent to
my personal e-mail addy or the ask the G4 addy on the main GABIT
website. (www.gabitevents.co.uk) I will let you know if it won't fit and
needs shortening. Many of the details were handwritten on our sheets/
your envelopes and I want to make sure I have the spellings correct.

As you all know, in addition to the quilt itself, we are also collecting
donations for the hearing dogs. In co-ordination with the charity, Sue
has kindly set up the following Justgiving site for the project. If you
have not already done so, please do go and check out the page.

http://www.justgiving.com/gabitquilt07

This is the hearing dogs preferred way of collecting the donations.
They get the money directly, you can use a credit or debit card and if
you are a UK tax payer, the charity can automatically reclaim gift aid (
an extra 28p in the pound) so please do check the right box!!!

Please give as much or little as you can afford. You don't need to
leave your name and you can also leave a little message if you wish.

If anyone who hasn't donated fabric wants to make a donation to hearing
dogs towards our total, they can also use the same page.

Many thanks for your enthusiasm for this project. The quilt will be
presented to Amanda at AT3 in May 2008. We will ensure pictures are
posted on the GABIT site after the event for those not able to attend in
person.

Once again I thank you and wish you all a happy and safe new year!

Big quilty Hugs
