Breaking news! How much money did the 2nd edition of Festival’s Pet Postcard Project raise?

Clarence

My Friends For Life rescue pooch Clarence was just as nervous as I was to hit our goal of $40,000 in our second year of Festival’s Pet Project.

 

I admit…when I set a goal of $40,000 in our second year to raise funds for Festival’s Pet Project where 100% of the proceeds go to Friends For Life, Houston’s only no-kill animal shelter and rescue organization, I was rather anxious (and a little dubious) that we might hit this goal.

 

But thanks to the generosity of quilters from around the world who made more than 1400 fabric postcards, to those who purchased postcards at Quilt Festival, and to those who additionally donated money, in total we raised…

WE RAISED $40,666.18!!!

 

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR HELPING US GET TO THIS AMOUNT!

 

Thanks to your support, animals who wouldn’t have had a chance at life, will. They will be spayed/neutered, medically attended, cared for in foster situations, and find forever homes.

 

We will break down these numbers and give more information shortly of where exactly this money will go, but I just had to share this really fantastic news!

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you…

  1. YEAH!!! Will get started on some soon for next year! If everyone increases their goal number for next year, think what can be accomplished!!! Well done, everyone!!!

  2. WOOHOO ! That is fantastic news, so glad you made your goal, lets aim higher next year !

    Some friends were asking me what I was doing with the postcards I had made, when I explained what they were for, a few have asked if I could teach them how to make them, so we are going to have a sewing day after Christmas where we will be making postcards for next years show !

  3. I am thrilled at the amount that you raised and that it is going to such a wonderful purpose. I have two rescue dogs of my own (rescued from Missouri to foster in Ohio and then to us in Cincinnati). I hope you are very proud of yourself and all who participated.

  4. It is wonderful that so many worked to help you meet that goal! The animals that depend on us for their wellbeing are blessed to have people like you in their corner. Thanks

  5. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for undertaking this wonderful cause! I can’t wait to get started on my postcards for next year, and keep us posted on the updates!

  6. Congratulations, really wonderful news. I’m going to make some postcards during the year so I’ll have a decent number to send in for next year. This year I was caught off guard and only had time to get one sent off in time. I’ve just started a new blog and will mention this good cause. Best wishes from Spain.
