Our Knitting for New Orleans grassroots fundraising efforts are really going well. I had asked a few knitters I know at work if they were interested in doing this, and since then it's blossomed into us, the spouses of some of our coworkers, and some friends of the knitters I work with who heard about this and wanted to contribute some items.
We have about 11 items up right that you can bid on. Remember, 100% of the money is being donated to the Red Cross for the hurricane relief efforts. They're all decorative scarves right now, but a few of us are thinking of whipping up some hats, small bags, and other similar items.
Because MissionFish and eBay make it so easy to donate to charity from the sales of items, I think I'm going to keep this up and maybe have a small regular charity knitting group going from the girls at work and any friends who are interested.
