Let's go team!!

I am amazed and at the same time humbled by the charity of knitters.. in Stephanie’s(a.k.a. The Yarn Harlot) words.. we are a big team.. a force to be reckoned with. So I call on you to show the world just what a force we are..
I know I have been talking about The Pearlington Project for a long time.. but the need is still there and current and is not going to be done till we are standing on the porches of houses of Pearlington..
The big goal:Raise $150,000 to cover the cost of materials with all volunteer labor to house 7 children and 5 adults. This is for 4 houses..
My part at Knitters Build a House is working to raise $45,000 for the Earl Family.
The Pearlington Project Katrina Foundation can bring this family home but only with your help. There are roughly 350 of you who will read this entry. If each one of you make a tax-deductible donation of only $10 to the Foundation and then send this linkor post it on your own blog and get at least 5 of your friends and colleagues and ask them to do the same, we will have $35,000 of the $45,000 needed. It is that simple and that doable. If you can donate more, I respectfully ask that you consider doing so. If you alone can not donate $10, I would ask that you please do what you can. Perhaps, your employer, school, church, or gym will help. Donate online at or via regular mail at the address below:
The Pearlington Project Katrina Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation
PO Box 127
Rhinebeck, NY 12572
