I always enjoy checking up on my friend, StevenA through his Bitches Get Stitches blog. The man can knit, Crafty Friends and besides - he’s a witty guy who can write as well, so his blog posts almost always put a smile on my face and sometimes even make me snort right out loud, getting me some strange looks from bystanders.
Steven is hosting his second annual World AIDS Day Project to raise money for the Lansing Area AIDS Network and many of your favorite yarnies and designers are standing with him – offering a cache of breathtakingly delectable prizes. Into the Whirled Fiber! Jane Richmond Patterns! Signature Needles! Woot! Of course, you may donate anytime to this deserving cause, but if you donate within the next 24 hours, you’ll be entered into the drawing for these amazing prizes.
From Steven – the how:
1. On December 1st, click this link to visit the Lansing area aids network website and make a donation via paypal. the suggested minimum donation is $40, the cost of one rapid hiv test. However, I know $40 is a lot money for a lot of people (myself included). Since I don’t want to discourage anyone from making a donation they can afford, all donations will be accepted, even if it’s only $1.
2. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and the amount you donated. The details of your personal information will be kept confidential. This is so I can keep track of the total as it grows, and so I can make sure you get your prize.
3. Winners will be chosen at random. it could be you!
fine bold print:
*Entries will only be accepted on World Aids day itself (Dec 1st)! This means 12:00am – 11:59pm is your 24 hour window to make a donation and send me an email to be entered to win some loot. I’m in the eastern standard time zone here people, so my giveaway is too!
On World AIDS Day, Steven once again is taking action to create the change he wants to see in the world. Was that a little too hokey? Okay – but I’m just dang proud of him for that.
Now I’m off to make my donation. Come to Mama, pretty prizes!
