happy tuesday!

usually it's tellafriend tuesday...
this week i am going to do something slightly different.
generally, i send you to somebody's etsy shop...
this week, i am going to ask a favor of you.

i'm asking for donations of all shapes and sizes for
the ConnieCaps fundraiser, scheduled for may 16th.

not too far back i told you about my friend, linda...
and put up a video about ConnieCaps.

i'll quote from her site...

ConnieCaps was born out of my love for my late mother, and a desire to bring beauty and warmth to the lives of people who are fighting the difficult battle against cancer. Here at ConnieCaps, we provide cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy with beautiful, stylish, and hand-crafted hats free of charge. All of our hats are made from quality materials hand-knit by volunteer knitters. Please get in touch with us if you are currently in treatment for cancer, and would like a hat. We would love to make your day a little better with a hat that is as special as you are.
We are a 501(c)(3) corporation, which means your donations are tax deductible. If you'd like to donate, please go look at our donation page. We have multiple ways to donate, and only a small amount helps keep us running. If you would like to volunteer to knit, or have further questions about hats or donations, feel free to contact me!

i understand that sometimes people don't want to donate
to lesser known charities and the like...but i can personally
vouch for linda and the amazing things she does.

to my friends and family and blog followers...
this is an amazing charity born out of love and compassion
and also the love of knitting. please consider donating even a small
tax deductible amount to such a worthy cause.
it will definitely help out someone in need...
and it might just make you feel good too.

now...to my fellow crafters...
(aka the craft posse, so named by the mr.)
i'm asking for your help. please please please considering
donating an item to this fundraiser. i'm sending along a
BuNnY MoNsTeR (surprise surprise) but any item will do...
and it's tax deductible!
you all make amazing creations and just one of those creations
could help raise $$$ to help this charity along.

so...if you'd like to donate...
please drop me a note or comment with your email address
and i can send the info and address to you.

thanks and have a wonderful tuesday!
