My friend Andrew Thornton from Allegory Gallery is hosting a raffle among other efforts to raise funds to support the disaster relief effort for the recent typhoon in the Philippines.

Several artists are donating jewelry, art and jewelry components.  All proceeds go to the cause. Raffle tickets are only $1.00 each and they can be purchased now until December 5th.  One winner for all these great prizes will be picked on December 5th.  To find out how to purchase raffle tickets click here.
Prize Contributors Include: Andrew Thornton, Sheila Thornton, Lisa Lodge, Lisa Boucher, Barb Cherwaty, Maria Richmond, Jan Durkin, Joan Tucker, Lana Weed, Gretchen Schueller... and more!
If you are interested in contributing something to the raffle prize, contact Andrew with a picture of your donation and its retail value.
Andrew has been posting some of the prizes on his Facebook page.  These are the pieces that I'm donating from my Clayworksnh Etsy shop for the cause:
They're all made from tan speckled stoneware clay and include two seahorse buttons, four starfish connectors, four beads and a surf's up starfish pendant.  Total retail value $85.00.
Tickets are only $1.00 each!  Try your chance at winning these prizes and more and help raise funds for the people in the Philippines.  Please spread the word.


  1. Thank you so much for contributing and for spreading the word! I am so touched by the outpouring of generosity and kindness!

  2. You're very welcome Andrew. More than happy to help. Thanks for hosting this wonderful fundraiser.

  3. awesome idea-the ticket price almost sounds too inexpensive if there is just one winner for many wonderful items-great idea, hope he raises lots of money

  4. Thanks Kathy - Hopefully people will buy multiple tickets! I hope it's successful as well. :)
