*RAFFLE* CHAINSTITCHED BANNER: 8 HOURS
"8 HOURS FOR LABOR, 8 HOURS FOR REST, 8 HOURS FOR WHAT WE WILL"
*RAFFLE WINNERS WILL BE SELECTED AND ANNOUNCED 5/31/21 at 12P CST*
In 2021, I'll be chainstitching and raffling off a banner in the final week of every month. Each 18x24" banner will be designed by a different artist, (the lineup can be found here), and chainstitch embroidered and sewn together by me. The banners will be raffled off at $10 per entry, and 100% of the money raised will be donated to the organization chosen by the designer of the banner. This May banner was designed Shelby Rodeffer, and she decided to donate the money to Hood to the Holler.
From Shelby: “In the 1800s, laborers in America —mainly immigrants— commonly worked a minimum of 60 hours in a 6-day work week, with wages that averaged $1.50 per day in dangerous and grueling conditions. Employers blacklisted workers who joined unions and paid strikebreakers to threaten and harass laborers who intended to strike or protest. In instances such as the Haymarket Riots, many workers lost their lives fighting for fair pay and working conditions, and the 8-hour workday was finally cemented into law in the 1930s with the New Deal.
More info about the raffle is as follows:
1. Each ticket to the raffle costs $10, and 100% of the money from the banner will go to the Hood to the Holler.
2. Every $10 gets an extra raffle ticket, $10=1, $30=3 tickets, etc.
3. When purchasing your raffle ticket(s) please use an up-to-date email address so that if you end up being the winner, I can reach out directly and arrange shipping details (or pickup if the winner is local to Chicago).
4. The contest will end May 30th at 12a CST, and I'll announce the winners on my instagram story at 12p CST on 5/31, then I'll get in contact with the winner directly.
