At Christmas the "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
as they are helping out in Haiti.
The thread on the parcel is here
and the listing is here
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
