Giving back locally.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Last week I talked about the quilt raffle and bingo on the 15th benefiting the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. These tickets are still available. Contact me if you want to go or get tickets.

But this week is another opportunity. Today I am bringing you the Parade of Homes coordinated by Reach Out Morongo Basin. It is on Sunday, February 17 of Presidents’ weekend. You will get to walk through 5 eclectic homes starting in Morongo Valley and ending in 29 Palms. One house even has a wall that spins. Your $25 ticket includes the tour of the five homes, lunch at the Park Rock Cafe, and live music. If you have any questions you can contact me or Robin at Reach Out Morongo Basin (760-361-1410).

Remember to look local first before driving down the hill or shopping online.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Two ways to give back!

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I have been approached by a dear friend, mentor, and fellow crafter. Lori is President of the Board for the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. Currently the Food Pantry is holding not one, but two, fundraisers. So here are the details for each.

The first fundraiser is a night of Bingo at the Elks Lodge here in 29 Palms on Friday, February 15. Would you like to go with me and have some fun? There will be stamping (hopefully a blackout) and prizes!

The second fundraiser is less expensive and it is not an event. If you would like to purchase tickets for a chance to win this quilt please let me know.

The quilt was handmade by Susan Lunn and donated for this drawing. It is approximately 4’X4′. Tickets are 6 for $5. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Board Meeting on February 25.

All proceeds go to the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. If you have any questions or would like to purchase tickets for either of these fundraisers please contact me.

I love when my fellow crafters make it so easy to give back. If you are a Red Door Crafter and involved with an organization that would like to be featured on Friendship Friday please contact me. I am always looking for new ways to give back and encouraging you to get involved. Our ripples become waves.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
