send in the gnomes mavis butterfield

Wahooooo! I wanted to give everyone an update on our Send in the Gnomes Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

OH MY GNOME! Together we have raised $1,600 dollars and collected 160 garden gnomes towards our $10,000 / 1,000 garden gnome goal.

In case you just stumbled upon this and your’e wondering who the heck is this lady is and why is she collecting all these garden gnomes, the gist of it is this. I am asking people to send in gnomes from all over the world, and for every gnome I receive from the Send in the Gnome project, I will donate $10 to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.*

The ultimate goal is to receive 1,000 gnomes and truck them across the country in a MotorGnome and deposit them in the raised bed gardens at St. Jude Children’s Hospital and in public, community and children’s gardens along the way.

If you see your gnome and it doesn’t have your name and location tagged, please let us know in the comments below and we will get the list updated.

Here are the gnomes that have been sent in so far.
