Online Fundraiser for Katie's Comforters Guild

Recently, I received a lovely note from a kind-hearted woman who wants to support our guild. Her name is Michelle, and she is a Pampered Chef consultant. Michelle offered to hold an online fundraiser for our guild, so that everyone can shop from the comfort of their own home, buy items they like and support our guild in doing so - that's a win-win-win situation! Here is the information:

Fundraiser for Katie’s Comforters Guildat Seattle Childrens Hospital

(the specific page for this fundraiser on Michelle's site is under "my calendar" - or click here.)
Please take a moment to check out the Pampered Chef online catalog link above, and support a great cause! The inspiration for Katie's Comforters Guild is Katie Gerstenberger, who was a patient at Seattle Children's Hospital. Her blanket from home, made for her by her mother, was a HUGE comfort to her during her treatment for cancer. Our goal is to bring that same comfort to all of the kids in the hospital. Volunteers make quilts and blankets for children at Seattle Children's, and funds raised through this sale will support that mission, and purchase supplies for the handmade quilts. For more information, please visit:

We'll raise funds three ways:
1. Donation of up to 15% of the fundraiser's total sales
2. $3 contribution for each Show booked from my fundraiser
3. Our Independent Consultant Michelle Farris will also donate her full commission of15% of total
fundraiser sales, so 25-30% of your purchase price will go to support Katie's Comforters Guild.
The more we fundraise, the higher percentage the Guild earns!
Please visit the link above and place an order through our fundraiser. Order high-quality products for your kitchen and for entertaining, while supporting our Guild. The fundraiser runs through June 20, so please make sure to place your order before that date. If you purchase more than $60.00, you will receive a free vegetable peeler- choose between serrated, julienne, traditional or avocado.
Please feel free to forward this information, and ask a friend or two to join us! Join in the fun - from the comfort of your own home!

Special thanks to Michelle Farris for this wonderful idea - please visit her page (see the link above) and contact her with any questions you may have!

Thank you for the heads-up, Elizabeth! I think I have it working now - the link to her main page is the big one, and the "here" will take you to the specific info page on her calendar (which says much the same as this posting).

Thank you for the kind words! I'm so excited to be able to give back to support Karen's guild. Both of my kids are "regulars" at Children's, and have both received quilts from Katie's Comforters Guild. My 3 year old was so excited to get a quilt last winter- when we walked into his hospital room, his bed was all made up with a warm bright blanket, and his face lit up. Thank YOU, for your good work!
