I've been asked by a couple of knitters if the shipment can wait until they are done with their sweaters before I send the box to San Diego and the answer is YES!

The box will leave here on September 21, 2005 and will arrive September 23, 2005.

If you feel you have time to knit a sweater and get it to me by September 21, we will gladly accept your contribution.

I've got all the current contributions tagged and ready to go, and there is still room in the box. I think I can do another, in addition to the things that I'm doing for the Katrina evacuees.

Let me know if you have intentions of sending a sweater, booties, hats, etc., so that we wait for you too.

Very Heavy Heart

Help by Banding Together to Aid the Gulf Coast

I come to you asking that we band together and do some knitting for those that need it the most and now that is the people in the gulf states due to the fury and heartlessness of Katrina.

It's going to be a cold and damp and lonely holiday season for so many of the elderly and poor. Let us put together our brain power and come up with a viable plan to help those that need the help the most.

We can come back to the Marine Mom's Project at a later date.

Let's post our best ideas give it some good discussion and form a plan to help.
I'm thinking of sweaters for children and homemade teddy bears.

Let's hear what others have to say.

I'm so disappointed in our "leadership" as they've fallen flat on their butts, not getting help to the suffering, the sick, the hungry, the thirsty in the gulf states.
It's a pretty pitiful showing for a modern day president who has just sluffed off the greatest and most horrific disaster known to the US since the early 1900's.

What do you say?
