    There is a little girl in our community that was born with her inside organs on the outside. Her name is Kennedy Joiner and she has a website set up I will check to get it. Is there someone that I could get in touch with who might be interested in making a couple of these for her maybe one to keep and one to raffle we have all sorts of yard sales and poker runs raffles and stuff to help her with them building her a bladder from her own cells and since it is experimental she dosent recieve any help so we raise money. I would do it my self but I am green at this quilting and now her kidneys are failing so she would need a couple of these soon. Any suggestions about how to get her a couple of charity quilts like everyone talks about doing for different organazations.

    Do you have a local quilt guild? Especially a state quilt guild? You could contact them for the names of people who might be willing to make and donate a raffle quilt for this child. I think your best bet is to find an experienced quilter who is willing and able to make a bed-sized quilt quickly. Check the raffle laws in your state to make sure you do it legally.

    Our quilt guild makes a raffle quilt every year for the quilt show, to help fund it. Members buy and sell a lot of raffle tickets for it at $1 each. I think this is one of the easier ways to make money for a charity, especially if you have some good ticket sellers in your community.
