Tricoteuses Sans Frontieres

While I did make some progress knitting this weekend, I wanted to blog about something much more important: Tricoteuses Sans Frontieres or Knitters Without Borders.

Stephanie, The Yarn Harlot, innocently proposed that knit bloggers donate monies to Doctors Without Borders in response to the tsunami devestation. While Doctors Without Borders has received enough monies to support their work in the tsunmai area, they are still accepting monies for their other work, including work in Africa, with AIDS, Darfur and Somalia, all issues that I think are pivotal.

So, instead of buying another bunch of yarn to throw into my always expanding stash, I donated to the US leg of Doctors Without Borders. Here's all of the information on the Knitters Without Borders.

Here's the button:

The amazing thing is that Stephanie has raised $37, 314! Wow! And there are a few goodies that will be given to a few of the donors. Just a little extra bonus for those who give to a great cause.
