I apologize if this is inappropriate. Please delete if it is.

However, even though this is a sale, I do not profit from it in any way. It's for a good cause.

Go to my selling site. Buy something.

I will donate every single cent you spend, except for shipping, to the Red Cross (or another such charity of your choice, if you wish). That means that if you buy something that costs $10, the Red Cross will get $10.

My shipping is cheap -- just $2. It'll get to you pretty fast; my experience is, usually in two-three days.

Go. Buy.

If you can't buy, please spread the word.

Don't like my stuff? Maybe you'll like something here. She's a friend of mine who makes great beaded and crocheted stuff and is also donating 100% of everything to the Red Cross. She also does custom work -- just ask.

Or: Maybe you'll like something here.

Don't want to buy anything, but still want to help? Donate to the Red Cross, Salvation Army, FEMA, etc.

uproar: plea for help on behalf of all Gulf Coast and New Orleans residents

I drafted this today on my way out of the storm affected areas. PLEASE forward this to anyone, everyone you can think of. Friends, family, individuals, corporations, national and internation news media.

I am writing to plea on behalf of all residents of the Gulf Coast region, from Louisiana to Florida. I am one of the lucky ones – I braved the storm and got out to be able to tell about it. I grew up in Gulfport, Mississippi but have lived and worked primarily in New Orleans for the last four years. Some friends and I evacuated that city late Saturday night to stay in Gulfport where we felt safer from the storm surge and flooding. Eight of us rode it out in my mother’s home, listening to and feeling the roaring winds and rains for almost 12 hours. Our back porch roof was ripped off completely, and the roof over our kitchen was punctured, leaving the kitchen in shambles from the effects of wind and rain. We count ourselves lucky, the house is still livable and everyone who stayed there is safe. My mother’s business and entire source of income, however, is completely destroyed. All of my friends from New Orleans have given up hope of salvaging their homes and possessions. Several friends, including my boyfriend’s father, are still stranded in New Orleans. My boyfriend and I were able to make it out of Gulfport to the nearest open airport, which was Baton Rouge, to fly north to help his company relocate and continue to do business. He is one of the lucky ones – he still has a job. When we left my mother’s house there was absolutely no communication in or out of the area, and we barely knew the status of Biloxi, the next city over, let alone much information about New Orleans.

I implore you, I plead with you, and I beg you, HELP US. Millions of people are homeless, without the basic necessities of life, or worse yet, hurt or dead. Many of these jobs and homes will be irreplaceable. The majority of these people have no way right now to ask you for help themselves. I’m sure they won’t mind me requesting assistance on their behalf. Last year I felt the effects of the tsunami in Southeast Asia from the other side of the world. Myself and many of my friends donated what we could to help with the relief efforts there. All we can do right now is hope that the people of the world will be as generous towards us as we tried to be for those who suffered through that tragedy. I am begging you, do what you can and put yourself in our shoes. Please know, I have seen friends and neighbors banding together to help each other make it through this experience. I will be the first to condemn those who are seen looting useless personal property, but please understand that those who have been left behind are forced to do what they must to survive at this point. They cannot do much without outside help. This is what we need from all of you so urgently at this time. Please don’t let us down – we can’t make it without you.

misschameleon: The Aftermath

In light of Hurricane Katrina's unbelievable devastation, I'm wondering if knitters and other handcrafters across the nation can get together on this idea.

People have lost everything - homes, livelihoods, family members. Most of those who survived are walking away with little more than the clothes on their backs. Might it be possible to make and send blankets - bought or handmade - to help deal with the crisis? A blanket can be a very comforting thing, for an adult or a child. Other items would be welcomed as well, I'm sure, but at this moment food, water, shelter, clothing and blankets are the things most needed and they would be greatly appreciated by the thousands displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

Please, if you know someone who enjoys working with yarn or otherwise has a skill that can contribute from a distance to the tremendous logistical problems being faced, put this bee in their ear. We *can* help without hampering the rescue and cleanup efforts underway.

katiedarling: Hey crafters!

Alright, there are fifty of us here, and forty-one of us watching! Not too shabby :)

I am wanting to spruce this place up a bit, so to speak. I've started adding some of the things y'all have posted about in the user info here.

I'd like to keep linking to your journals and your favorite charities on the info page. So, if you would, please give me the name of your favorite charity(ies), what they do, how you donate, and how others can help you help them.
You can also include any other info you want listed as well.

And if anybody can make us an icon, that would rock!

Thanks :)
