It's that time again...

Team Cupcake Mafia is back and getting ready to race in the Denver Oyster. We're biking, running and keeping our eye out for clues that might help us out on the course, but the most important thing we're doing is once again raising money for the Make a Wish Foundation of Colorado. Last year, we raised $8,300, which helped grant the wishes of two very deserving kids and their families.

This year, our goal is to raise $10,000!

I know that with your help we will make our goal. Aside from knowing you are helping create a bright spot in a child's life with your donation, we have some fantastic gifts and prizes for this year's campaign. I'll blog about the prizes in a separate post and if you're interested in donating a prize, contact me at lynnazimmerman AT mac DOT com.

  • 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, including skeins of my handspun. 
  • Each additional $10 will get you an additional entry into the drawing 
  • If you donate $30, you will receive the pattern, three entries in the main drawing and one entry into a special drawing for some extra special prizes including a skein of FiberNymph's Nyan Cat sock yarn!  

To make your donation, visit my personal fundraising site at:  (Please make sure you donate on the page at this link)

You will receive an email from me within 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. If you have not received your pattern within 24 hours, contact me at lynnazimmerman AT mac DOT com.

Please note: The donation amounts that are listed on the fundraising site are set up by the Oyster staff 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 closer to our goal of granting three wishes for deserving kids and their families.

Unfortunately, we are not able to take donations from outside of the U.S. using this system. If you live outside of the U.S. and would like to make a donation, send me an email at lynnazimmerman AT mac DOT com. The race is Aug. 25, so all donations up until noon on Aug. 24 will be eligible for the pattern and the prizes. Thank you for your support!
