View Full Version : Slightly OT, charity online auction of knitting items

At Christmas the "Irish Knitters (http://www.ravelry.com/groups/irish-knitters)" Group on Ravelry did a Secret Santa swap. One person's present got lost in the international post so we all contributed a gift for her and sent it to the organiser. Meanwhile the original package showed up. We all decided that we would rather that the presents went to a good cause. More stuff was added to the package and the organiser has just listed the whole lot on e-bay with the view that the proceeds should go to Concern Worldwide (http://www.concern.net/en) as they are helping out in Haiti.
The thread on the parcel is here (http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/irish-knitters/1000999/) and the listing is here (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150446163333) we are trying to spread the word so that people know about it, but I think the bidders should take into account the cost of postage from Ireland
