~November #Refugees Match Fund~
MATCH FUNDS RAISED SO FAR: $45.00
An anonymous donor has pledged to give $1.00 to the International Refugee Committee for every $1.00 donated through Persistent Stitches during the month of November up to $200.00.
This doubles the power of your donation!
To trigger a matching donation: Donate for any Persistent Stitches listing, giving to one of the charities listed for that item, and a matching donation will be made to the International Refugee Committee to support their work assisting the world’s refugees.
New to Persistent Stitches? Here’s how it works.
Persistent Stitches is an all-volunteer collective raising money for resistance, social justice, and anti-oppression work through crafting. Every item on Persistent Stitches is handmade by our crafters and many items are one-of-a-kind. We post items along with the name of an organization/cause that item supports and a minimum donation amount. Donations should be made directly to the organization at or above the minimum dollar amount. Donors then email Persistent Stitches (firstname.lastname@example.org) with:
- Proof of donation (usually an e-receipt or screenshot of confirmation page).
- A mailing address.*
- Any specific information required by the listing (e.g. your color or pattern preference).
Crafters then mail out the claimed item(s) to the donor within one week!
