Here’s info from their blog:
On April 27, 2011, a record number of tornadoes unleashed their fury against the southern part of the United States. 38 of Alabama’s 67 counties were declared disaster areas. Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia also suffered massive destruction.
People just like you and me lost homes, businesses and loved ones in this storm, the second deadliest tornado storm in U.S. history. At last count, over 350 people have died, thousands are homeless and the cost of damages is in the billions of dollars.
Ready, set, donate!
Inspired by the craft community’s efforts in other such disasters, we decided to rally and help. Stumbles & Stitches is hosting “Stitch Home Alabama“, a raffle to benefit The Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services in our tornado-ravaged southern states.
The Salvation Army is currently operating 22 distribution centers across Alabama and Mississippi to provide items like food, hygienic products, clothes, cleaning supplies, and much more to survivors. “The best way to help tornado survivors and rescue workers is to make a financial contribution.”
Let’s Have a Raffle!
