Raffle for Japan

I've been sat here staring at the screen trying to find some words to write about Japan and what the people of Japan might be going through.... But I can't....all my words seem so small.....instead I can talk about my prize & the raffle....I've joined Jo and lots of other bloggers because it's my small way of trying to make a difference and I hope you can join me and that together we can make some money, which I hope will help where it's needed.
So.
The Prize....a Giant version of my storage box (so big it needs handles...and they needed giant ric rac, because they looked plain without it )

and the box comes full of crafty, colourful things ::

If you would like to win this prize (more photos below) please follow these instructions carefully and to the letter...this isn't the same as my freebie posts.
This is important and the rules must be followed.
To enter this raffle you need to make a donation of £5.
Go to Global Giving and make a donation of £5, when you have done that come back to this post and leave a comment with your receipt number and a valid email address...you can write the email address like this :: youremail (at) youremailplace(dot) co (dot) uk
I will post the prize anywhere in the world so everyone is very welcome to enter.
You may enter as many times as you like but you need a new receipt number for every entry...so if you want to donate £20 (4 entries to the raffle) you need to donate £5 four times...get it? it's a bit clunky and not perfect but this way your money is being paid straight to the charity and it's simpler like that.
For help making a donation please look at this post on Jo's blog.
If you make a mistake or forget to add your email address please delete your first comment and re-write it.
The raffle closes at 1pm (UK time) on Saturday 26th March
I will write each entry onto a raffle ticket and the winner will be drawn by hand by a helpful volunteer (i.e. not me!!) I will require a copy of the receipt from the winner to prove the donation was made.
the raffle on this blog is being held in association with Jo's Blog :: A Bit of This and a Bit of That. We are in no way associated with global giving , that's just the way we have chosen to get funds safely to the affected area.
the contents of the box...it's worth over £175 .... that's worth a £5 ticket isn't it?
Sewing Items
8x sewing threads, one of my owl kits, a handmade needle case and a handmade patchwork pincushion....pin cushion close-up ::
Supplies
9" felt rainbow, 5 spools of felt ric rac, a box with 35m of ribbons
Buttons
3x white boxes of buttons (50g in each) tied up and packaged with giant buttons, a stack of 12 giant polka dot buttons
Hand made & cute Items
regular size felt box + tortoise, giraffe brooch, felt covered notebook, cupcake keyring, cupcake embellishments, orange Happy Tree decoration and 20 mini reels of Deco Tape

all packed inside this handmade storage box....everything will be wrapped and packed with care and delivered to the lucky winner by courier.
Thank you for reading...Thank you for donating...and Good Luck to everyone!

I woke up the morning of the earthquake on Tsunami alert, I live on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. It is all too real and very very scary.

We are due for a earthquake close to this scale at some point. My heart bleeds for Japan and my friend there. Thank you so doing this.
