Do those of you who are makers of things out in blogland ever donate one or more of your pieces to good causes?
I have been doing so for a long time, for fundraisers for politicians that I like, for the wives of authors who needed medical help they couldn't afford, for our local Arts Council, etc.
I think it's a great idea...so this week I donated a hat and some earrings to one of our local environmental protection groups, Cowichan Land Trust. They are having a fundraiser to raise funds and help protect the estuary in Cowichan Bay (you can Google it, it's a beautiful place just down the road from where I live).
I am mentioning this because sometimes we may not have the money to support the causes we believe in, but we can often find either the time to volunteer a few hours or to donate something to be auctioned or raffled off.
Think about this for the future...I often feel a bit guilty that I can't afford to support all the programs and charities that I would like to but when I can give my time and materials I enjoy it immensely, and it opens up the world to you and your work...
