    Two Counterpane Koozies

    Photo + Slate, Thank You Video

    You will send me a photo of yourself to include in my thank you video titled "My Counterpane Took a Village" and I will additionally add a slate with your name. Viewers need at least 2 seconds to read a title, which means you will get extra screen time for your altruism. If you're too busy to send a photo, we'll just give you a slate.
