Earth Day Raffle!

Kathleen Miller

Kathleen Miller

Greetings, fellow nature lovers!

In honor of Earth Day, on the 125th anniversary of our National Parks, I'm holding a special raffle. This handmade quilt honors our parks and the wild creatures that live there. This quilt is one-of-a-kind, using fabric my mother and I have collected over the years from craft stores all over the country. It's 53" tall and 46" wide, perfect for a child or a lap. (Or, in my case, a blanket-stealing dog.)

A $5 donation gets you one ticket; $20 gets you five. If you're the lucky winner, I will reach out to confirm your mailing address, and if you live out of the area, I will cover any associated shipping costs.

This is part of my ongoing Ironman 70.3 fundraiser with Team Sierra. Please make sure to mention the raffle in your comment so that I know that you want to participate! The drawing will take place on Earth Day, and the winner will be notified via the email provided during the donation process.

Good luck!

Just a quick refresher on the Ironman 70.3: In August, I will be representing Team Sierra in a triathlon that consists of...

1.2 miles of open-ocean swimming
56 miles of biking
13.1 miles of running

... back-to-back-to-back in under 8.5 hours. I'm doing this to support Team Sierra, and your backing means a lot!


The quilt raffle is over. EMILY M. is the winner! More updates coming, now that the weather is nice, and thank you so much to everyone who has donated already.


Front and back!

Happy for the chance to win your beautiful handiwork, but more happy to support your efforts toward helping a fantastic cause! It has been fun to see snippets of your training progress; you are an inspiration to those of us who barely run, hardly swim, rarely bike, and never quilt. Keep up the awesome work!
