Crocheters + Knitters = A Cure

CIBC Run for the Cure - Donate Today! This post contains a wham-bam tag team of official announcements. I'm gonna knock 'em both off in one sentence. Here goes:

On Sunday, October 1st, Knitgrrl Shannon Okey and I will be kicking off our two-week-long Monsters of Teen Craft Book Tour by participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure in Toronto, Ontario, as members of Team Knitty. The talented women of Knitty.com have been raising money to fight *** cancer for the last couple of years, and I'm thrilled and excited to join their team and to represent, yo.

As the title of this post states in an airtight mathematical proof, when crocheters and knitters band together good stuff happens. The event will be taking place in 51 communities across Canada, and money raised will go to fund *** cancer research, education and awareness programs. I've set myself a lofty goal, and I hope you'll help me reach it. If every Crochet me reader were to donate a dollar every time they visited the site in a month, we'd raise over $100,000. So please visit my secure donation page and give as little or as much as you can to help fight this disease, and to foster some love with our two-needled friends. (Donations are in Canadian dollars, so for all you Americans, your dollar goes further! Canadian residents will get a tax receipt by e-mail — just request it when you fill out the donation form.)

If you prefer to donate by check (in Canadian dollars), please send one payable to "Canadian *** Cancer Foundation" to this address:
Crochet me Magazine
4438 W. 10th Avenue
#185
Vancouver, BC
V6R 4R8

And as I said, this important event will kick off our book tour. Shannon and I will be traveling by rail and signing copies of our respective books in cities from Toronto to Washington, DC. I'll share more concrete details in coming weeks!

Now, back to getting that pesky summer issue ready…
