From her website:
Every American should be able to go see a doctor when they need to. I support making Americans healthier and more economically secure, and strengthening Medicare, by allowing all Americans to buy into Medicare.There are many reasons to support Darcy Burner's campaign, but to me, this is a strong one.
I want Darcy's progressive voice speaking out in Congress. That's why I'm running a fundraiser for her all this month.
The entire month of July will be a quilt fundraiser for Darcy Burner, candidate for Congress, WA-01. There will be a drawing for the quilt signed in Providence at NN12 the first week in August. Everyone can get one chance per day, each and every day in July by EITHER donating $10 or more to Darcy Burner's campaign through this Act Blue page OR by writing a 50-word-or-less essay on this topic: How can we bend the arc of history more towards justice for all?. If we deem your essay to be on topic, it will count for a chance. Send essays to winglionquilts AT gmail DOT com with "Darcy Burner" in the subject line. To recap, earn an equal chance once a day every day in July by either donating or sending a short essay (one or the other). That means everyone who began at the beginning can have as many as thirty-one equal chances in this drawing. The first week in August, I will find a neighborhood child to do the drawing and someone will become the new owner of the quilt.
Quilt stats: It will be about 66" square, sleeved for hanging. The fabric is cotton, the batting a fine wool. I am quilting it by hand and am close to finishing it.
Here is a quilt fundraiser diary schedule for the rest of July. Please let me know in the comments if you would like to post a diary. Thank you!
