Thanks for the update, Sandy. (plus, I'm bumping this up...)

I did receive some more money for our postage!

So far, since I first asked for help several months ago, I have received $350 in donations.
I have used $327 for postage.

We now have $23 dollars available. Getting slim!

I used $25 dollars tonight to mail 4 packages. I wonder how much postage will be when the rate increase goes into effect?

Thank you to all of the wonderful KHers who have donated knitting needles, yarn, journals, point protectors, and postage funds. I couldn't have done all of our Oddball projects and mailings without your help!

Sandy,

That donation button on the blog is fantastic! There is an option to print out a donation receipt...helpful for tax time.

Yay! I'm glad you like the button, my friend.
Thank you for your help!

Today, my funds are better! I received some help from a few of you, and now I have about 60 dollars available!!


Just in time, too. I'm mailing packages to England and Canada this week.

Wow! Believe it or not, our funds are gone again!
That was FAST!!!

But, I don't want you to send any money. Here's what I want.

Please tell others about our project, and tell them about our main website. http://blanketfinder.blogspot.com/
(There are links to all our Oddball projects on that page)

There is a Paypal donation button on every one of our blogs.

Hopefully, we will get a few donations from people that are not knitting with us. I think we are doing quite enough of the work ourselves. I'll see if I can drum up some donations as well.


Thank you all very much for your help!

Good idea, Sandt. I'll put a blurb on my blog about it.

I made a post about it on another board of close friends. (They love looking at the blankets too) And some of them knit so maybe they will join us.
