Tote Tuesday, the next big fundraiser for American Cancer Society

Virginia Spiegel does it again:  another wonderful fundraising event for the American Cancer Society, as part of her Fiberart For A Cause.  To date, FFAC has raised over $190,000.  One hundred percent of the monies raised is donated to ACS, making this one of the top 10 fundraisers in the country for ACS for the last several years.  I have been a proud participant in all of the past events.

Tote Tuesday kicked off yesterday, with smashing results (this taken from Virginia Spiegel's blog):

The first ToteTuesday was great fun and raised an amazing $1518 for the American Cancer Society.  Thank you for your support!
An even bigger and more exciting ToteTuesday is planned for Tuesday, February 9.
1.  Expect MANY more totes up for bid.  More totes=More variety=More donations for the American Cancer Society.
2.  Stop by Monday, February 8 for a full preview of the totes that will be up for bid.  The opening bids won’t be shown only because that sometimes sets off a premature bidding war which is never a pretty thing.  You can check out the mini-previews of the more than 40 themed totes donated by generous artists and fiber-related businesses to ToteTuesday now.

Journey By Water by Laura Osborn (tote and accessories) and I.  I named this collectionJourney By Water because of this poem by the same name in my book:
Listen to the waves, the trees,
The cries of the loons.
Hear the stillness;
Reflect and discover
The currents within you.
3.  Here is a checklist so you can be ready to bid on Tuesday, February 9.
Questions?  Suggestions?  Please leave a comment or e-mail me, Virginia(At)
