Sorry for the bad pun, but this year I'd really like to see if I can encourage y'all to donate to , one of my favorite charities. They help poor families all over the world by giving them animals — animals that then help their owners out of poverty.
One of the most effective anti-poverty animals is the sheep — and it's one that ought to be the easiest for all of us sewers to give! A few sheep can give a family not just meat and wool for themselves, but enough extra to sell and pay for better housing, medical care, and education. And, they're cute!
So if you check there to the right in the sidebar I have one of those nifty thermometers. It would be great if we could donate enough to buy ten sheep ($1200)! If everyone who comes to this site every day each gave just one dollar, we'd have more than enough … whaddaya say? Wool you help?
