Well since chairities seem to only be accepting gifts of money, maybe we could seel crafts on ebay, to raise money to donate?

What's left of Katrina is now in New England, and the rain is still coming down so hard. It must have been crazy scary for those in the south where the water is flooded the majority of the land and buildings are washed away. I also heard there are sharks swimming in Louisiana?!? That is some pretty crazy stuff. I live in Maine and we are just now getting poured on, its what you would call raining cats and dogs. But I can't even imagine what it was like to witness the rain and wind and terror coming down in New Orleans and the areas that Katrina hit while she was still a hurricane. Thats what you would call raining elephants and dinosaurs! Makes it seem like its only raining mice up here in Maine, good luck to all of you.  Kiss

I really want to help too! I'm in Canada and it is sometimes so hard to know what to do for people so very far away and in a different country. I'm wondering if we can't come up with a way to raise money to donate to the Red Cross together. Like a donatation from the Craftsters here. This is the largest group of creative people i have ever came across. We have so many people here with so many different talents. I'm think it would be great if we could set up some sort of website where any member of Craftster can send in a craft (blanket, t-shirt, skirt, etc) to be sold and all the profit can be given to the victims. How hard would this be to do? Is it even possible? I'm just trying to find a way we can help.

I don't have any idea either. I was hoping that someone who has the knowledge about websites that sell items could help out. (i have seen some great websites that some of u all have done) Like i said we have a lot of tanlet here in many different areas....we could make a rocking website with some rocking stuff!
Smile, it makes people wonder what your up to.

I feel good because i live in houston, and the county I live in, Harris, is being so very open to all theses ousted people. Like all the schools here are accepting kids that are essentially homeless and then the Astrodome is being turned into a GIANT shelter. I feel so good that my city is being so welcoming, but i sorta feel like I am not doing anything, I really hope that i can think of a way to help other than monetary gifts, because i havent any.

I really like the whole Crafters Unite Money thing.
Also, if we could create things (or send pre-made stuff) to keep stranded/displaced people busy. Puzzles, cross-stitch, coloring books, whatever. I have a feeling that people are going to be displaced a LONG time. I read an article today that the mayor says New Oleans will be unlivable for 2-3 MONTHS. That's crazy.  Sad

I live for jesus is on the right track. The people at craftrevolution.com have set up a storefront at etsy.com and are selling crafts made by crafters like us with all of the proceeds going to the red cross emergency relief fund.

So while there are plenty of us with big hearts but little wallets there is a way to help. Craft something & donate it to craftrevolution. All you need to do is send them a picture and a description. They will email you when it sells.

Unfortunately more than anything money is what is needed & this is a really great way to make some that will go straight to the red cross.

There is more information here: http://craftrevolution.com/craftersunited.htm

They have already made over $1,000.00 in one day! The etsy store front is http://www.craftrevolution.etsy.com

If you don't like that option ebay has partnered with mission fish & will let you choose a charity to donate all or a portion of the sales to.


yep I got a knitting blog
