So I work with Whole Foods Market in Louisville, KY. We are raising money for the Whole Planet Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides micro loans to women in Third World Countries to start their own businesses and get out of poverty. Many of these women cook, sew and do some pretty crafty stuff to make a living and I thought that it would be awesome to do something crafty to help them. I will be teaching knitting classes to raise money. I am also trying to get knitters and crocheters to donate test swatches to sew together to make a blanket to be raffled off for the Whole Planet Foundation. I think it would be pretty amazing to be able to have people from all over the country participate in improving the quality of someone's life by contributing to a blanket. If anyone is interested in donating some swatches, please mail them to:

I would need them no later then the end of March because that is when the fundraiser ends.
If you have any questions or would like some more information about this please send me a message. Thank You!
