Our First Group Project:
Celebrating Our Survivors: A Virtual Quilt
Our goal is to bring together all of our lung cancer survivors and their family and friends to show their support by contributing to our virtual quilt.
What this project entails is either a significant piece of artwork or literature us how lung cancer has impacted your life. This can be anything ranging from a personal photograph that tells a story or something you have written that relates to the cause that has a great deal of significance to you. Each piece will be added together to create a larger quilt to be displayed on our group page as a whole deviation. With each quilt entry, a $5.00 donation will be made towards the Lung Cancer Alliance.
Submission must be no larger than 600 x 600 pixels. See a live example of this particular box sizing here.*
You may submit your quilt boxes under any category that you wish. This includes, but is not limited to: literature, photography, digital or text art.
You may send in as many of these as you like. However, be sure to note all of your entries to `LadyLincoln.
Your deadline is January 1st, so you will have plenty of time to be as creative as you wish, just be sure that it relates to our lung cancer support theme.
*Special thanks to `KathrynODriscoll for originally inspiring the quilt idea with her Box Challenge.
