Today isWorld Aids Day. I know this because my friend, blogger and fellow Michigander, Steven, organizes his "Bitches Get Stitches World Aids Day Project". Last year he raised just under $5,000 in a very short time. This year his project has gotten larger with a huge sponsor list of donated PRIZES. 100% of the money raised will go directly to the Lansing Area Aids Network. Today, I'm honored to be a part of this great cause by donating a Knitterella prize package that includes a humor project bag filled with 2 sets of humor note cards and 2 sets of humor gift tags as well as my most recent pattern, Chevron Stripe.
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 Steven 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 he can keep track of the total as it grows, and so he can make sure you get your prize.
3. Winners will be chosen at random. It could be you!
