More about Hawaii
No knitting last night, but tonight my group is getting together for some Thai takeout and some serious knitting!
Have you donated to Claudia's ride for MS? She has a goal of raising $20,000! We Knitters Against MS are a powerful bunch! (And you don't have to be a knitter to join KAMS.) And she's got some great raffle prizes too!
If you are planning to donate to the Red Cross for Greensburg, KS: I talked to my friend who works for our local Red Cross, and she said the Red Cross prefers to receive donations for the Disaster Relief Fund, and they they use it for things like this. If you designate "Greensburg, KS", then you know it will go to help; but if they've received all the aid they need, then it will just sit there until Greensburg, KS needs help again. If you donate to the Disaster Relief Fund, then it can be used always for the current disaster. She says the Red Cross has been very busy, with flooding in the Northeast, and fires, and of course tornadoes.
I've added both Claudia and Laura's afghans for Greensburg, KS over on the right. I'll try and keep it updated with other charitable giving opportunities.
