I am participating in a Charity Blitz for 2007 on Crochetville and I thought it would be nice to bring the idea over here to Craftster. A great Crocheter names JimmieLu started this in the 'Ville and I'm hoping she won't mind that I "borrowed" her idea.
I'm sure there is enough interest to Blitz a different charity a month in 2007.
Here's how it Works:
Every month in 2007 those interested in participating will pledge at least one item for the monthly featured charity. The person responsible for the months charity will provide the specifics on the chairty, what is needed, what the deadline is, etc. The item(s) will be sent to the person whose charity is chosen for that month. That person will then take the items (or make sure the items get there) to the charity they have given us to blitz for that month.
If you would like to participate and have a charity in mind for a Blitzing in 2007, please PM me. I will then edit this list to show the monthly Blitzes. December 2007 is already taken...you will just blitz a charity of your choice.
