Knitters are amazing

Go to the Yarn Harlot blog and check out how the Knitters without Borders are doing in the donations to Knitters without Borders. Since Friday night she has raised over $80,000 dollars for them - I am putting the banner on my blog now that I have made a donation to this worthy cause.

My eye doctor is one of the doctors who has done lots of work with this group and now I can feel that I made a small contribution at least.

Seriously though - see what knitters have done as a group - donating to this cause, knitting for charities (Dulaan, Warm up America, Prayer Shawls, caps for preemies etc) and be amazed.

So many times I have thought what can I do by myself that would make a difference in the world and feel that I have no power - then I see what we, as a group, have done and I realize that knitters are a force to be reckoned with. Imagine what we could do if we had some knitters in major political offices pulling us all together. We could run the world bwahahaha.....

Thank You Stephanie for opening my eyes to the possibilities of group participation for change.

How are you doing? I have been giving to doctors without borders for a few years now - it's my go to charity for any in memory of donation and I give on subscription monthly basis. Missed you at the library last week, hope to see you in January... Merry Merry and Happy New Year.

Merry Christmas Rho! I hope you'll have a wonderful one. Thanks for reminding us to share some of our bounty with others.

I hope you don't mind but...

Be afraid, be very afraid.
Tag! You're IT!

Please see my blog for details, I hope you'll have time to play. It only took me a week to think of what to write.

I knit for charity but I love this Idea, like Doctors Without Borders which we give money too. This one has a button though! Putting it on my list and blog. Thanks Rho!

Merry Christmas Sweetie! And a very Happy New Year, too.
