Alissa is hosting a fundraiser for Action Kivu, an organization in eastern Congo that runs a sewing workshop for victims of the conflict there. The conflict in Congo has taken the lives of over 5.4 million people since 1998. Rape is used as a weapon of war, with estimates putting the number of rapes in the hundreds of thousands.
Our quilting/sewing community is an amazing one and we understand the therapy and joy that a sewing machine and needle and thread can bring. Head to Alissa's blog and read more about Action kivu and most importantly donate. Whatever you can give will help. If you'd like a chance for the Flea Market Fancy you'll need to donate 75 dollars. I'd love to see Alissa smash the goal she's set. We can do this!
