Feel Like Helping?
All you have to do is knit, crochet, or weave one or more washcloths, and then contact them about where to send it, along with a bar of soap... an easy way to help. My fellow co-op member, Peggy, and I have seven ready to send out, and I am contacting our soap-making community members to get a few donations. I have added both of their buttons to my sidebar at the left, in hopes that my visitors will take one, and spread the word.
Here's part of the stack of facecloths that Peggy and I contributed from the Mountain Harvest Crafts Co-op. I will be continuing to make cloths as my carry-around project this month.
In another small effort, my friend Susan, owner of the North Fork Coffee Company in Downieville, decided to dedicate all the money she collected on Thursday and Friday to donate to relief efforts. Susan has 58 relatives in the affected area that she had not been able to contact by this weekend, and please keep her and her family in your prayers.
I edited this entry this evening to add the following photo:
Here is a photo of the North Fork Coffee Company in Downieville, with lots of people waiting around outside for the annual Donkey Races to start on Sunday.
It helps my soul to hear about similar small efforts all around the country (and apparently the world). We each have so much within us to give.
