Team M&R 1st Place In Pillowcase Challenge
The 2018 March Pillowcase Madness Challenge has come to an end. The organizers of the One Million Pillowcase Challenge brought a little friendly competition into the making of pillowcases 3 years ago, and started the March Pillowcase Madness Challenge. Registered teams earn points by posting to social media about their progress each day, win bonus points by getting the most votes each week and then being awarded 1 point for each pillowcase made during the month. In 2017 Team M&R placed second in the competition, but we are very excited to announce we have placed 1st in this year's event.
The donation of fabric and pillowcases, along with all the sewing, ironing and cutting that was done, helped us reach our 1st place position. Thank you everyone for your donations and help, the kids in the pediatric units of St. Mary's Hospital - Madison will appreciate all the colorful pillowcases.
We also want to congratulate all the other teams from across the Country who participated in this year's competition. The Charities that will benefit from all these groups efforts, to make such beautiful pillowcases, will be appreciated by many. It's always fun and rewarding to make these pillowcases, but the March Challenge lights a fire under all of us to work a little harder. We are all winners when we open our hearts to such a worthwhile and fun charitable project.
