Mother's Day Quilt 2013

That's right, everyone, it's that time of the year again!

For those who don't yet know, each year Operation HOPE offers a beautiful, one-of-a-kind quilt handcrafted quilt for Mother's Day. As always, we will be holding a raffle drawing on Saturday the 27th of April at our Mother's Day Tea (more information coming soon!).

As you can see, this year's quilt is another work of art! This masterpiece, called 'Do You See What I See' was lovingly created by Teresa Al Alban after over 100 hours of cutting, piecing and quilting. If you would like to enter for a chance to hang this magnificent quilt in your home, and give your support to Operation HOPE, please read on!

Entry details:

  • In order to enter for a chance of winning, we ask that you kindly donate KD1 to our cause. This will award you one chance. A donation of KD20, however, will award you 25 chances (that's 5 free chances!), making it much more likely for you to win!
  • Donations will be accepted each Saturday at HOPE House from 9am-12pm, or you can contact us at  99375613 to make arrangements to drop off your donation at your convenience.
  • As mentioned, the drawing will take place on Saturday the 27th of April at Operation HOPE's Mother's Day Tea. Don't worry if you are unable to attend - the winner need not be present!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your undying support and devotion to our cause, and wish you the best of luck in the drawing!
