Today I donated $215 to Doctors Without Borders, in large part thanks to purchases of the Knitters Without Borders fundraiser version of the Mug Jacket knitting pattern.
Thank you all for helping to make this donation possible.
March 25, 2008 - December 10, 2008: $126.00 raised through sales of the Mug & French Press Jacket pattern! I sent the donation off to Doctors Without Borders today. If you aren't familiar with Stephanie Pearl McPhee's fundraising arm for DWB - Knitters Without Borders - please check out the info page over on the Yarn Harlot blog. The pattern is still available for free (please look in the left sidebar for the appropriate link); if you choose to buy the pattern (which is more detailed and gives instructions for working it from the sides down instead of from the bottom up), $4.50 of the pattern price will be donated to Doctors Without Borders, and the remaining $1.00 will be used to cover PayPal fees and hosting costs.
