Description

WHAT'S A SORT-A-THON?

Well, it's a sorting event of marathon porportions. But instead of running 26.2 miles alone, we're recruiting all our FAB friends to help us sort for 24-Hours straight. There will be meals and music and special presentations throughout. Kindof like throwing a productive party and fundraiser.


HOW'S IT WORK?

  • Sign up for as many 1 hour sessions as you like.
  • Take home 2 pounds of fabric for every session. For example, 3 sessions = 6 pounds of free fabric!


WHY?

With the most loving shout-out to all who have volunteered with us before, we've sorted about 65% of all the material we've ever collected! We're trying to start 2019 fresh and clean... and a little more caught up.

GOALS: SORT 10,000 POUNDS and RAISE $2,000

All donations during the sort-a-thon will directly fund the opening of a FABSCRAP fabric thrift store in Manhattan. Yes, this is really happening! Suggested donation to participate is $10 to help us cover the cost of meals, but feel free to give anything you like. If you'd like to share that you're sorting by-the-hour, creating a fundraiser for FABSCRAP on facebook is a great way to ask people to sponsor you (a la the traditional jog-a-thon).

***Make your donation when signing up for your first session with the FIRST HOUR ticket type, then use the ADDTIONAL HOURS ticket type for each additional session.***


WHAT TO EXPECT...

We've planned the meals and music and movies and special presentations throughout. Use the tentative schedule below to help you decide what hour(s) you want to attend!

PLEASE NOTE: if you'd like to be here for a meal, sign up for the session BEFORE or AFTER. For example, if you sign-up for the 6pm session, we'll need you sorting during that time! Sign up for 5-6pm and stay for dinner or 7-8pm and come early for dinner at 6pm.
