OMG....I got an EM from Brad Pitt.....if you are female and breathing you can't TELL me that you don't think Brad Pitt is....well......you know.......HOT.....or at the very LEAST....he is cute....and I GOT AN EM FROM HIM!!!
Are you jealous??? Come on...... you KNOW you ARE!!! Want your VERY OWN EM from Brad Pitt??? Come on....you KNOW you do.
O.K. All fun aside for a minute!
I know that there are a zillion charities around that tug on the heartstrings of so many, myself included! It is hard to have to pick and choose when there are so many in need.
I knew from talking to Christy (of Hurricane Sock Swap Fame) a couple of weeks ago that she was going to be a featured guest on the Ready, Set, Knit podcast to promote raising money to build homes in the lower 9th ward in Louisiana following the massive destruction from Hurricane Katrina. Christy did a GREAT job on the podcast and a GREAT job on providing information on donating to this project. PLEASE click on Christy's link to read her entire post.
In a Nutshell:
Christy's challenge is to ALL knitters to assist by donating, of course as much or as little as you can afford, and as OFTEN as you would like....but in essence if everyone that reads this would pass this information on to their friends and relatives and donated the equivalent of a skein of sock yarn......maybe once a month until Hurricane Season ends that we , the knitting community at large could raise enough money to build a house, to provide a home for a deserving family. There are several different teams participating in this challenge....Christy's is cleverly named "The House That Yarn Built".
Would it not be just AWESOME to know that by donating the equivalent of a skein of sock yarn we could build a house??????? (are you giving up yarn purchases for Lent?? Wondering how you are going to handle the withdrawal....how about every time you feel the need to buy yarn you make a donation??)
Here is the link to the team home page, be sure to click on The House That Yarn Built to be sure your donation is credited correctly!!
AND.....you'll get an EM from Brad!!!! What MORE could you ask for??????
