A Little Something for the Cause....just because

  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 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.
Here is the hat I donated...

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...

  1. You would be surprised how some charities need people to dedicate their time. Most find it easier to hand over some money.
