Bundles of Fibery Joy

Thank you everyone for your amazing support!
We raised $3,734.25 for the NFC Momentum Fund!!!
This year has shaken our country to its foundations, and Covid 19 has left the country feeling helpless and impotent in the face of a global pandemic. But the death of George Floyd has been a wake up call to the nation in this time of enforced isolation that there are still other endemic problems that need solving and that our action is long overdue. Rather than sit home feeling helpless, it is time to heal our nation’s heart, as we wait for the breakthroughs that will protect and heal our bodies.
In this spirit, we invite you to join Rowan Tree Travel in our first ever raffle fundraiser. We have curated three abundant collections from Scotland, Iceland, and northern England. We will have 3 winners, one for each bundle! If you have traveled with us to any of these beautiful locations, then these collections will be a lovely déjà vu of your own adventure. If you have not been along, then they will be a very good omen, suggesting that perhaps you should consider adding them to your wishlist (wink wink). 
All proceeds from this raffle will be going to the NFC Momentum Fund, an initiative founded by Karida Collins, owner of the Neighborhood Fiber Company in Baltimore, Maryland. The NFC Momentum Fund is accepting tax-deductible donations that will be dispersed to a variety of organizations working for justice, empowerment, and equality. In Karida's words: "At its heart, the Fund will allow me to focus our giving on the areas that need it most. Right now, we are raising money to support protestors in the Black Lives Matter movement. Last month, we donated money to a community organization that is feeding families in Baltimore that have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic." 
The Winners for the Bundles of Fibery Joy are:
  • Katherine Stewart : Scotland Bundle
  • Ann Sheppard: Northern England Bundle
  • Gail Goodman: Iceland Bundle
  • Laurie Arp (runner up prize):  Valley Tam Kit by Hawkshaw Sheep
