    We got 520 au$ and our pastor's wife won it. It was just the icing on her cake as at the time she was just in hospital with her youngest daughter who had major surgery due to her spina bifida. So we were all so happy for her to be blessed with this quilt!!! The money went to Africa to help at this orphanage http://www.kondanani.org/ A couple of our church are just over there right now to help.
