I was feeling a bit down today and had to take some time away from work to get my head straight. After some talking and thinking I decided to work on a project. It’s not for profit, this one is for charity. I have quite a bit of yarn in a bag and I’ve been trying to think of what to do with it. I suppose with enough time I could have thought of something profitable to do with it, but something else came to mind and I decided to go with it. I decided to make a patchwork throw rug for charity.

 

I’m probably going to donate the proceeds to The American Red Cross or Doctors Without Borders, but I’m not sure yet. I know that eBay is set up so that you can donate any percentage of your profits to charity when an item sells, so I’m going to do that when this is finished. I’ll start it at $0.99 with penny bids if they still allow that, and see what happens. I’ve tried and failed at charity auctions before, but I’m really hoping that it’ll work this time. I actually have a scarf and some supplies that I’m thinking of doing the same thing with.

I really wish that more people were interested in giving to charity. Even if you don’t really want the item that’s being auctioned, you can be doing a good thing. It’s not really about the item, it’s about the cause. I’ve bid on a few things in the past that I had no interest in, but the cause was good. I didn’t win, but I was glad to see the bids go up and someone buy the item and have their money do some good. Even though I’m in serious need of money myself, I still think about others who are worse off than me, and I really want to do something for them if I can. Hopefully when I get this project finished and I list it, people will put in bids or at least help me promote it so that maybe some money can go to a good charity.

      Awesome 🙂 When I get it done I’ll promote it and hopefully others will share it too. Right now it’s gone from pot holder size up to large seat cover. I still have 11 balls of yarn to add to it though 🙂
