Over £1675 raised!

Wow, just wow! When I laid out my target of £1500 during #memademay2020 for the sewing labels, I really thought I was pushing the realms of possibility a bit.

But here we are just halfway through #memademay and we’ve not only hit the target, we’ve SMASHED IT!

When I released my French labels on Friday there was a sudden rush of orders (thank you!) not just for them, but for the charity labels as well so suddenly we reached just over £1675!

When I went online to make the donation, I realised that Natwest have updated their commitment to match customer’s donations to the National Emergencies Trust. In the beginning I could only see the way donate via Natwest Rewards which I don’t use – but now they match cash donations!

I was delighted and, as with the previous donations, added Gift Aid to the donation which adds an additional 25% to your contribution.

So all in all, we have raised a whopping £2768 for the fund!!! Zut alors!!!

I want to say a huge, huge thank you to everyone who has supported so far. Whether by making a purchase, sharing and promoting on your stories or by sending me a little motivational message, the momentum from the sewing community on this has been brilliant.

Hundreds of little envelopes have been sent all over the world in the last 5 weeks or so and it’s been brilliant to see how you’ve used them so please, keep sewing and don’t forget to tag @modistasewing in your makes and I’ll do a little happy dance here in Liverpool.

Thanks again, stay safe, and stay sewing!
