I made a moderately sized individual donation yesterday to Doctors Without Borders (in addition to the Knitters Without Borders trend, I’ve been a fan of them pretty much ever since James Orbinski came to speak at my undergraduate University convocation. I think they’re great.) in light of all the need for Haiti relief and support, but I keep reading more about it as news comes in and you know, I can do more than one donation.
From now until January 30th, 100% of all pattern sales from Knitting to Stay Sane (here at my Ravelry store) will go to Medecins Sans Frontiers/Doctors Without Borders. If you’ve been waiting to snag yourself a copy of Viper Pilots or 14 Karat or Rendezvous, if you do so now you can know that money is going to be passed right on forward. I’m going to eat the Paypal fees myself. $5 for Viper Pilots is $5 for people who are doing a hell of a lot of important work on the ground.
Happy knitting, as always!
