We've raised over $28,000 for our Louis' charity drive for Eden Dora Trust so far. That brings our total amount raised over the years we've been doing this to more than $168,000!
I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who donated, spread the word, bought something from the auctions, or contributed designs, artwork, ideas, etc. for Louis’ charity drive! Despite all the drama, this has been our most successful drive to date! Tricia and Jo did an amazing job this year as Team Leads on Louis’ drive (and they’ve agreed to come back next year - woo hoo!).
I couldn’t do anything without Ariel (createdoutofnecessity) behind the scenes keeping me on track and helping me with the mammoth task of shipping all the stuff. Beth did a great job taking over the 1D Fans Give tumblr and giving it a much needed facelift! Thanks to all the artists who contributed to the art book and cyrilliart for helping coordinate that. Thanks to our quilter, and the artists, @ashleyrguillory, @rosketch and @rubycurls for making the quilt soooooo beautiful - it was our most successful auction item this year! thanks to the 24dol crew at @louisforlunch for organizing that part of the drive. Thanks to @fuzzypurplestuff for all the knitted goodies. Special thanks to @laynefaire for her quilts/beanies and letting ariel and i bend her ear via text message. There’s so many other people who helped so please know that i appreciate the effort EVERYONE put into this.
I know this was a hard year for everyone, but I want to thank everyone for supporting our drives and helping us meet and exceed our goals every year. I’m so unbelievably proud of what we accomplish here every year and I’m honored that you all still support me and 1D Fans Give! We still plan to do this next year so start brainstorming for 2016!
