Day one of the Hat-Tember project, and I'm already blown away! I've spent most of this week sick (and now Owen's got whatever I had, plus a few new teeth coming in ... fun!) and so I wasn't sure how big of a bang this project would begin with. I should have had more faith!
Before even posting this first hat, I'd already managed to raise $145 - 19% of my goal, and almost 6 kids receiving education for a year!
Now it's up to me to deliver, and deliver daily. To those of you who have already helped jump-start this project, a big thank you! And for those of you just showing up, just discovering the craziness that's about to ensue, strap in because it's sure to be a fun and crazy ride!
I'm crocheting a hat a day for Hat-tember 2012! Each hat will be donated to the Chicago Food Pantry's annual holiday kid's party (more posts about this here), and I'm attempting to raise $750 for Pencils Of Promise at the same time!
You can view posts from the entire project here.
Help me reach $750 this month by sponsoring this hat for just $25 - the cost of sending a child to school for a full year through Pencils Of Promise! Just click the "donate now" button below to donate!
Looking for ways to support the Hat-Tember project? I've got three easy things you can do today:
One. Click the "donate now" button above! While the suggested amount is $25 - the cost of sending a child in Guatemala to school for a full year - you can feel free to donate as much or as little as you can. Even just $5 will help me reach my goal!
Two. Help me spread the word! Jump onto your favorite social media space and tell everyone you know about the Hat-Tember project! Be sure to use the #hattember tag so I can find you easily and say thanks!
Three. Follow the blog! In the right-hand sidebar you should see a group of photos with the title "members" above it. These are folks who follow along with the She Makes Hats blog, and I'd love to have you join their ranks! Clicking that link doesn't mean I'll start sending you bunches of unwanted stuff ... it's simply a nice way to let me know you support what I'm doing!
I'm making 10,000 hats for 10,000 people. This is hat 155. Add a comment »
