Hey, everybody -
My dear friend Robin has been selling handmade aprons online. They are lovely and beautifully crafted, with 100% cotton backing and decorative stitching all around, and each apron is completely reversible. UPDATE: You can see the 30+ aprons for sale here.
Here are her lovely daughters modelling three of the many aprons she offers:
She offers them at $35 and has been doing a brisk business, but I thought it would be fun to raffle one off here, because I know I can’t be the only one who’s starting to fret about Christmas presents. So here’s the deal: you can buy one of these lovely handmade aprons for $35 . . . or you can enter the raffle for a mere THREE DOLLARS.
A little bit about Robin: she is an Army vet and a gifted photographer who is raising two teenage daughters. She has been a single mom for four years after a very contentious separation from her husband. We all know how difficult that life can be, but Robin seems to be given more than her share of burdens. She has back problems and an anxiety disorder, which make it impossible for her to work outside the home.
Robin HATES to ask for help. She hates, hates, hates it. She struggles so mightily to support her family on her own. They have sold half of their possessions in yard sales, just to raise money for necessities — things like toilet paper and food. Last winter, they turned on the heat for just one hour a day, in the girls’ bedroom right before bed, and they expect to do this same this winter. This will be the third year when can’t even think of Christmas or birthday presents. They have no car, and often spend hours of their day walking into town to do errands.
I know that Robin would never agree to a pure fundraiser, but she is glad to raffle off one her gorgeous aprons. So this is your chance not only to support a sister in Christ, but also to get a chance at winning something lovely! To enter, just click this button:
