The Big Idea.

Compassionate Craft Week

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a personal knitathon for a while now, where all the knitted items would either be auctioned/ raffled off or donated for charity. But I’d miss out on one of the most wonderful things about joint challenges like the 40-hour famine or Knitting Olympics: the way fellow participants create a community, cheer and inspire each other on. There is truly strength in like-minded numbers.

With all of this in mind, I’d like to formally invite you to participate in the fledgling, inaugural Compassionate Craft Week 2010. A knit/crochet-athon spanning the first week in October, the aim of CCW 2010 is to create items for charity in whatever form that takes. The finished products could be donated, raffled, or auctioned off for the benefit of the non-profit cause of your choice.

Now, I’m not a well-known or influential blogger, but I know some of you are. If this idea interests you at all, please: tell your friends.

There will be prizes, ravelry and flickr groups, a facebook page, twitter hashtag, and any other ways you can think of to share and connect before, during and after the experience.

Thank you.
