Recognition is good sometimes

if you've been reading here for very long, you've seen my postings about finishing another afghan square (say, in yesterday's post for example)

I send these off to this organization, and you can read all about our activities by using this link.

Our leader was recently sent a copy of a book titled How to be an Everyday Philanthropist...330 Ways to Make a Difference in your Home, Community, and World -- at No Cost by Nicole Blouchard Boles, that has a short bit in it about our organization.

So far 11,350 afghan squares have been used to create afghans that have been sent to places like the Gulf Coast and Haiti, and I'm proud to be able to say that some of my humble efforts are part of that

So, we're trying to get folks from all 50 states to commit to making just ONE eight inch square on October 23, 2010, for Make a Difference Day.

Come on, it's just one little eight inch afghan square -- you can knit or crochet, you can use up some of those bits and pieces you've got in your stash!

join us!!
