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.
