Eggs-Travaganza Easter Benefit Raffle… for The Whiskers' Syndicate

Easter Benefit Raffle… 
for The Whiskers' Syndicate

Brizel would like to announce a very special fundraising event: An Eggs-travanza Easter Raffle benefiting The Whiskers' Syndicate, a fantastic feline rescue sanctuary in Bandung Indonesia. It's run by an EFA colleague and friend, Josie, an extraordinary animal advocate doing incredible things in adverse conditions. Brizel Supplies sponsors The Whiskers Syndicate on a monthly basis.

We thought we would do something fun this month and fundraise by doing a raffle. In fact, I admit its 'all my fault' since it was my idea. So we have these wonderful Brizel items up for grabs as prizes for ticket buyers. Check them out !

Above is a very special silk tapestry art box, made by Brizel Handcrafts (aka me) and it will be given to the person whom buys the most tickets. Its a soft container made with two different yarns- one is a brown rayon yarn with rainbow silk sari bits in it- the other is a light blue silk sari yarn. Silk sari yarn is made from reclaimed material- discarded left over loom warps from weaving factories. The material is rescued and spun into yarn. This little box was embellished with a vintage playful kitten button- totally ready to pounce on you !

Here's another Brizel Handcrafts silk tapestry art box. This little soft container is made from banana silk yarn, its a vegan silk like yarn made from banana fibres. The top of the box has been embellished with a vintage, cute easter chick button. This is a ticket drawn prize. One of the kitties at TWS will choose the winner.

Courtesy of Brizel4TheAnimals… this is not just a fabric that you see, and seriously, you don't need to be a seamstress to use this vintage yet brilliantly fresh-coloured sash. Handmade in Guatemala, this vintage, yet new, cotton sash is 3 1/2" wide by approximately 89" long, this fabric is great for belt and obi making... festival or special event costumes, outfits and embellishment projects... for making guitar or drum straps... for making hat scarves or head bands... use as decorative trim or as small banners... or anything else that your imagination would like to make with it ! This is a ticket drawn prize. One of the kitties at TWS will choose the winner.

A delightful tagua nut daisy pendant necklace… hangs on a faux swede ribbon cord… totally vegan and animal friendly… Tagua nut is the seed of a certain palm tree an you know what? It is used to replace ivory, so now you don't have to kill an elephant to be fancy. ha ha ha. One of the kitties at TWS will be very happy to locate a winning ticket for you.

More tagua nut beads, teamed up with silver plated findings… there earrings will give cheer to your ear lobes during any season. also donated by Brizel with feline magic to draw the winning ticket. You cant win without one of those (wink).

Lastly in the pile of Brizel donations to win from this splendiferous event… a tagua nut medallion disc stretch bracelet in a dark navy blue. If you've never worn tagua nut- its silky and smooth :) 

Raffle Details Here
Tickets are:
1 for $1
6 for $5
15 for $10

All you have to do is click on the donate button at the top of TWS FB page to purchase your tickets. (Or you can go to their website and click on the Chip-In donate button in the left column.) If you require any assistance- you can contact me through my Brizel4TheAnimals shop.

On April 26th Josie will toss all the tickets on the floor and let the kitties choose the winners. She's promised to video all the ruckus and fun with the cats so that will be a prize in itself.

During the week you will have opportunities to "win" tickets as well. Josie is going to come up with three questions about The Whiskers' Syndicate so you can all learn a bit more about the sanctuary. You may have to go over to the website to find the answer but that is part of the fun. That's our Easter Egg hunt. The first three people to answer the questions correctly will win an extra ticket for the drawing.

Additionally, the person who does the most sharing of the Easter Egg-Travaganza posts next week will receive 2 tickets for the drawing.

Then there will also be a prize for the person who buys the most tickets and does the most sharing of the Easter Egg-Travaganza posts during the week.

So get ready for some fun next week and brush up on your Whiskers' Syndicate history for chances to win extra tickets for our fabulous prizes.
