- For your $5 donation, you will receive the My Hope pattern that was generously designed and donated by Laura Linneman of The Knit Girllls.
- For a $10 donation, you will receive the My Hope pattern and one entry into the drawing for some amazing prizes (see my blog for more info on the prizes) - Each additional $10 will get you an additional entry into the drawing
- If you donate $30, you will receive the pattern, 3 entries in the drawing and one entry into a special drawing for some incredible prizes including a skein of FiberNymph's Nyan Cat yarn!


You will receive an email from me within approximately 24 hours of your donation with a code to download the pattern from Ravelry. Please do not email the fundraising site contact for questions regarding the pattern.


The donation amounts below are set up by the fundraising site and I can't change them. You can enter any amount in the empty box below the suggested amounts. Every donation makes a huge difference and gets us close to our goal of granting three wishes for deserving kids and their families. Again, thank you!!
