I have recently joined a group called the Fiber Arts Avengers, which is a collection of crafters (knitters, quilters, dyers, diaper-makers, etc) who have come together to raise money for a variety of causes. Most recently, the “cause” is a little boy named Nat, called “The Professor” by his friends and family. Nat has a malignant brain tumor and will be undergoing all sorts of horrible treatments that no child (or adult!) should have to experience.
We’ll be offering a series of auctions and raffles over the next few days, with the first listings going up on Friday. You can find out more here: http://hyenacart.com/Charity_raffles/ . Most of the auctions are baby/cloth diapering related, but I wanted to mention it just in case anyone is interested. I’m contributing some pumpkins toward a fantastic gift basket that will include lots of little stuffed fruits/veggies and blocks.
