The Daily Lois and Butter Bean's Brigade. I started knitting for Lois the month she was diagnosed. Four friends and I each contributed knitted squares to an afghan to comfort Lois while she was sick. Now that she is gone, I would like to continue to comfort her and her family with my knitting. The Raffle: I am "raffling" this piece to raise money for one of the charities that supported the family while Lois was sick. Please go to the family's fundraising page for the ASK Walk-A-Thon and make a donation. (While recommended donations are listed, you can click on the green "donate" box and make a donation in any amount you are comfortable with. Please donate at this >> link << Do not send money directly to me). After you have made a donation, come back to my blog and post a comment that you have done so (and please only comment if you have made a donation). At noon eastern on April 15th I will randomly chose one (1) winner from those who comment below. I will post the winner in this blog and ask that you contact me to provide shipping details, so please check back. Please feel free to re-post this link. The more participants, the more we honor Lois's memory. A note regarding the recent disaster: I considered holding back on my raffle knowing that many of my friends would chose to make donations to the relief efforts. While the need is unquestionable, charities closer to home also require assistance in order to continue to provide much needed services. Even a small donation can go a long way in comforting a child with cancer.
