I am sure many of you are wondering about the “iGive button” on the side of our blog. iGive is a website that has partnered with over 1,600 stores to facilitate donations to a chosen cause based on a percentage of a patron’s purchase. When you have the iGive button installed in your browser the site will automatically pop-up a banner to confirm your donation. Once you have iGive installed, no further action is needed. Donations will automatically be processed to the ABQMQG.
This month iGive is running a donation special. Each “new to iGive” member who joins during July 2015 and tries the iGive Button beginning within a week of joining, and continues to try the Button through 10/15/15 will earn a $5 bonus for the ABQMQG.
But why support us?
We believe that education and sharing a love of modern quilting is paramount to our cause. To do this, we plan to bring in the coming years many quilters dedicated to the craft of modern quilting. So far, we have Angela Walters and Victoria Findlay-Wolf coming for trunk shows and workshops. We also use our funds to buy materials for quilts that are later raffled off to support charities such as the Free Wheel Chair Mission. Just this past April we brought out the Best of QuiltCon 2015 to the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Fiesta. We strive to not only support our community but bring value to our membership as well.
If you have any questions about iGive or our mission as a guild, please let us know!
