This is one of the Holtzian cards I talked about yesterday. And several times in the preceeding weeks!!
I have an online friend (yes I do) who works for a charity called The Project Group. They support and offer all the know how for people with mental illnesses or challenges. Their income comes from the crafts they do - almost entirely by recycling other materials. Felted goods, jewellery, cards, handbags - you name it. They are currently in a public competition and the prize of £10,000 will be awarded by public vote. Yep, this is where you guys come in.
Given that we all acknowledge the 'therapy' that our crafting brings us, I feel we who are well enough to make and do on a daily basis without fear or strain have an affinity with groups that promote this sort of work for the good of our mental health. I wonder if you'd join me and vote for The Project Group? Here's how:
go to www.futurefriendly.co.uk
- click on Future Friendly Awards
- the 5 shortlisted projects will appear. The Project Group is right at the bottom
- click on "view more info" next to the Project Group
- click on vote
There is no doubt that the other charities are equally worthy - but The Project Group is the one in this instance, and I hope you agree.
Meanwhile, back at my desk, I had an email from 3M about some stuff on sale and the ATG monster gun is among them....worth a look if you've had ATG envy.....
Y'all have a nice weekend.
