Giving Tuesday is celebrated in the United States on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to encourage acts of generosity during the holidays and on every Tuesday.
The quilting and sewing community has a rich tradition of caring for and giving to others. Look at how we all came together in 2020! And in honor of that generosity, Bloomerie Fabrics will make donations to local organizations that care and give to others, as well. A portion of every December sale will be donated to the following charities (if you have a preference for donation, please leave us a note with your order):
The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank is a non-profit organization that provides nutritious food to over 31,000 people through a network of community partners and food assistance programs in Fredericksburg and the surrounding four counties. In 2019, they collected and distributed over 4.2 million pounds of food and groceries -- or the equivalent of 3.3 million meals.
The Fredericksburg Regional SPCA is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter dedicated to the principle that every life is unique and worthy of protection. They receive no outside funding and rely completely on donations and volunteers to provide care for approximately 400 cats and dogs daily. As a local leader in humane care and education, the Fredericksburg SPCA's mission is to tackle the problem of pet overpopulation through education, adoption, rehabilitation, and spay-and-neuter programs.
