Things are in the works and starting to happen.
I have been in contact with some famous names in blogland and have been offered fabulous prizes.
Our own KittyWrinkle has put forward one of her handmade, internationally acclaimed sock monkeys. Picture to follow when the executive committee reach a decision however Kitty has assured me it will not be adorned in the same way as her snow monkey;-)
The very lovely Missus Little Cotton Rabbits has donated one of her stunning creations so for one lucky charitable donor our poster girl, Annabelle, will be hers to treasure.
Also Lisa from u-handbag is adding one of her gorgeous handmade purses into the pot.
I'm A Ginger Monkey has just emailed me to ask if I would like this cot quilt.
'Jolly kind,' I thought 'but I don't have need of a cot quilt anymore. Princess C-W and d/Boy are far beyond such beds now. Oh!' On realising my idiocy I gratefully accepted her offer straight away.
To be in the running for one of these prizes is the easiest thing in the world.
All you have to do is:
1. Click on the link to The Australian Red Cross.
2. Donate some money (credit card only)
3. Come back here and tell me how much you gave.
4. I will allocate one 'ticket' for every dollar you gave.
The minimum donation on the site if $5 so straight away you get five 'tickets'! Simple, non?
Officially the draw goes live on Saturday 14 and I will draw names on Wednesday 18 but I will be taking note of people who have contacted me so far and all names I receive will be entered into the draw.
I am basing this on an honour system and am going to believe you when you tell me how much (if) you donated.
Thank you all for taking part and come back because there will be more pictures and prizes to share.
