Giving it a go again

I'm gearing up for a project that I'm pretty excited about. I tried to do this earlier this year, but my goals were too outrageous and it wasn't planned enough. So here is the deal.

My project is called Crafting Against Cancer and Diabetes. My goal is to make 200 items for charity in 2010 (I made around 100 this year). If you think I can do it, sign on to be a pledger, and if I do succeed, I am asking that folks donate $25 to either the American Diabetes Association or the American Cancer Society. If you agree to pledge, I will make an item for a charity of your choice in your honor.

I am really excited about the prospect of raising funds for 2 causes close to my heart while continuing to make items for other charities I care about. I am hoping other crafters join me and get pledges of their own too because that would be really fun :)

I'll keep things updated here so if you are interested in following along, well, this is the place to do it! Woohoo! :)

Cool idea, my goal for this year was 200 items, but I feel well short of that. In fact at one point, I stopped counting so I didn't know how far from my goal I was. But, soon it will be a new year, so who knows how it will go.

I've not forgotten about making a blog and have messed with it a bit. Since the smallest of info was on the yahoo page, I started with that. Not sure how this is going to work; will keep you posted.

Happy New Year
