Lockdown 5.0 Manderley Fundraiser for Lifeline

Here in Australia, we are facing another wave of COVID and so many folks are in lockdown at home again as we try to contain it.


UPDATE: 1 August 2021. Today I donated $2,300 to Lifeline Australia!  Thanks so much for your fabulous support. I am sure it will go a long way to helping those struggling.

I drew a name at random from all those who purchased Manderley in the past week and Carolyn C is the lucky person I will be sending the blues Manderley Blanket to. Thanks for your support Carolyn.

Manderley Fundraiser

Lockdown is hard for many folks and many reasons. I wanted to do something to help, so I am running the Manderley Fundraiser for Lifeline Australia who are taking oh so many calls from folks who are struggling to cope.   I am also giving away the sample blanket for Manderley to one person who supports the fundraiser – anyone in the world is eligible.

To join in the fundraising and be in with a chance to have the above blues Manderley Blanket sent to you, head to my shop or Ravelry, add Manderley digital pattern to cart and enter the code LIFELINE to get 50% off the price.

The code is valid from 25 July 2021 to 31 July 2021 (AEST).

On 1 August, I will donate 100% of the proceeds of all Manderley pattern sales to Lifeline Australia.  100% of proceeds means exactly that.  I will cover the Paypal, shop and Ravelry fees.  So if 100 at $5 are sold, $500 is donated.  Makes the maths easy for me!

Everyone who doesn’t use the code, or makes multiple purchases of the Manderley pattern, gets one chance to win the blanket for every $5 spent.  I will post the name of the winner here once I have contacted them on 1 August.

I will add a copy of my donation receipt to this post once the donation is made.

The blues sample blanket I am giving away was made for me by the amazing Sam of The Littlest Stitch using Bendigo Woollen Mills cotton.

Thank you so much for your support. I am sure it will make a real difference.  I announced this on 25 July on social media and the total raised is already around $1,000!  Amazing.  Let’s see how high that number can get to!
