Hands-on-Heart Breast Cancer Pillow Drive
FaveQuilts, AllFreeSewing, and Fairfield Present:
2014 Hands-On-Heart Breast Cancer Pillow Drive
Table of Contents:
Over the course of their lives, 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month approaches, FaveQuilts.com and AllFreeSewing.com are banding together with Fairfield to host the Hands-On-Heart Breast Cancer Pillow Drive, a month-long creative campaign to raise not only awareness but also directly alleviate some of the pain and discomfort of breast cancer sufferers who have undergone a mastectomy.
The Hands-On-Heart Pillow has been specially designed to fit comfortably under the arm of a post-op patient, relieving some of the pressure from that area and protecting it from painful bumps and bruises. These pillows are easy to make, appropriate for all ages and experience levels. They can be made with a sewing machine or stitched by hand.
We believe in getting a little for giving a little, so everyone who sends a pillow will be automatically entered to win a reward! Fairfield World has generously offered to donate a Grand Prize of assorted Fairfield products, valued at $250.00, in addition to weekly giveaways!
Every week, one lucky donor will win 5 pounds of Poly-Fil®, Fairfield's 100% premium polyester fiberfill, which is perfect for pillows and stuffed toys. On November 1st, we'll select a Grand Prize winner from the entire pool of pillow donors. The Grand Prize includes:
- Fairfield Nature-Fil Batting
- Foamology Soft Tiles
- Poly-Fil 100% Premium Polyester Fiber Fill
- Poly-Fil Pillow Insert (18x18in)
- Poly-Fil Pillow Insert (12inx16in)
- Fairfield Cotton Quilt Batting (full size)
- Poly-fil Supreme Ultra Plush Fiberfill
We will be collecting all donated pillows at our offices in Northbrook, IL and personally delivering them to the American Sewing Guild of Chicago and the American Cancer Society. Please have your pillows delivered to:
