A Garden of Delights

We are delighted to report that since our last posting six days ago, we have received donations totaling $735.00!!! We continue to be amazed by everyone’s generosity. This puts us only $360.00 away from our goal. With six days left in the Garden Challenge, imagine what your donation could do!!! 

To all who have contributed so far, thanks for supporting the gardens. 

If you haven’t peered into the garden beds recently, take a look. Daffodils are beginning to poke through the soil and Lenten Roses are setting bloom. It won’t be long now…

The Queen Anne Avenue Garden Challenge, An Update

Our first foray into the world of matching donor funds is close to being an unqualified success. Many amazingly generous supporters rose to the challenge and contributed a total of $3905 by December 31st. Take a look at our Supporters page for details.

Unfortunately, we've come up $1095 short of our $5000 goal.

The great news is that our challengers have agreed to extend the deadline to January 20th. This means that there's still time for you to help us reach our goal. $1095 is so doable: that's 10 people giving $109.50 each, or 20 people giving $54.75 each, or...well, you get the picture.

Perhaps you couldn't give in December but you can now. Perhaps you can tell others who, like you, appreciate the beauty of the gardens but aren't aware that it takes community support to keep them thriving.

Donations can easily be made by clicking on Donate Now! in the green box to your right or by mailing a check to 2212 Queen Anne Avenue N, #542, Seattle 98109. Hurry. We'll keep you posted on our progress.

Full details about the Challenge can be found in our blog post of December 6, 2014.
