A couple of quick updates –
We’re now sitting at $60 for the Endure4Kindness fundraising that I’m doing! Thanks so much to all who have donated so far! If you can, please feel free to add to that here.
I’ve also sent an e-mail out to a local charity which helps with the homeless population in Minneapolis, Sharing and Caring Hands, to see if they have a need for any particular sizes or types of knit items this year. I looked into the Humane Society, but they only accept fleece blankets for their kitties when it comes to textiles.
I haven’t had the chance to look into any local elder care or children’s hospitals, yet.
However, I did notice that the forum used to raise money, Crowdrise, has a points system, where you earn 10 points for every dollar raised. Those points can then be redeemed for either merchandise or to help other charities. If I can get enough points, I plan on redeeming them for a year’s worth of mentorship for an at risk child through iMentor. If not, I’ll either send them to AIDS awareness education or to send malaria nets to needy villages in Africa.
SO, that increases the number of charities helped from two to three. If you can’t afford to give right now, please spread the word! Again, donate here, if you can and are willing to.
Secondly, I’ve just activated a sale on my shop! Use coupon code SOLONGSUMMER for purchases over $5 to get 20% off your purchase. I’ve also put a few things on clearance:
I’d designed this hat myself, so it can either be worn as a hat, or a muff around the neck. It’s very warm, extremely soft, and kind of reminds me of a mushroom. I like mushrooms. They’re cute.
Anyway, it’s price has been lowered to $12.75.
|Uber-long Multicolored Scarf|
Obviously brightly colored, but also quite long. It’s now $17.00.
Lastly, but not leastly, is the water scarf. I had lots of fun with this one, and I may end up making more from various colors somewhere down the line. This one’s down to $21.25.
So, that’s it for me today! If you like anything listed in this entry or in my shop, but don’t feel as if you can afford it, there’s no harm in asking someone else for it as a gift, right?
