Some of you may already know this, but my youngest sister, Linda, was diagnosed with MS five years ago. We've been participating in our local MS Walk for the last four years. For this year's walk I swore I was going to try raising money through my blog. Did I ever get around to it? No. (Sometimes I'm quite the procrastinator.) Well, we participated in this year's walk last month.
I even knit while I was walking.
And even though the walk was held last month, the National MS Society is still accepting donations that will be credited towards this year's walk--but not for much longer. So...
Here's what you do: Go to my MS Walk page before Wednesday, June 11th, and make at least a $5 e-pledge. Then send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me you want to be in the raffle.
Here's what you can win:
A skein of Smooshy sock yarn!
But--here's the catch: In order for me to give away the Smooshy, there has to be at least 20 donations made. If there are less than 20 donations, there will be an alternate prize. (Fibery, but not Smooshy.) However, if there are more, there will be additional fibery prizes.
So that's it. Time is short, so spread the word. Just $5 for a chance to win wonderful yarn and help researchers get that much closer to a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
