I decided to post this here as well as the General Knitting forum...just to make sure more people see it...

You probably remember Rabbit's son, Austin, being burned quite badly a few weeks ago. He's still at the Shriner's Hospital and will remain there for a while longer as he still has more grafting to undergo. Over 70% of his body was burned, and they've grafted about 20% thus far.

His birthday is the 27th of this month, and The Knitter (hugs, my friend) and her Canadian knitters decided to send him postcards. She suggested that we get an atlas to mark the places where the postcards are coming from. Knittinmitchie is handling that part.

I would just love to see them be able to plaster the walls of his room with our postcards.

If you are interested, please send me a PM, and I will provide you with the address of the hospital.

Thanks, all!

:hug:

I'd love to send him a postcard. I was thinking that it might be neat to send him a postcard from Austin, Texas. My cousin is going there next weekend. I'll have her pick one up.

Already responded. :hug:

This project is spreading like wildfire! It's posted on Ravelry under This Week in Ravelry, and I've had a LOT of responses! Some people are contacting their relatives and friends in other countries to join in.

What a wonderful group of people...all of you.

The.Knitter...what a GREAT idea! :hug:

It will be interesting to see how many cards he does receive. I did mail mine last week.

I did mail my post-card last week... I meant to mail it sooner- but, my car had not arrived yet (I'm now in Germany)-- and I was spending the week at work getting my classroom ready for the upcoming new school year... and since, I didn't have a car... I couldn't get to the post-office that is about 3 miles or so from work.

I'm sorry that it probably won't arrive in time for his birthday. :aww:

To let everyone know I ordered Austin a BIG world map and had it gift wrapped for his birthday. I is supposed to arrive on the 25th.
