You guys know there was a huge honking hurricane that blew through Vermont this week, right? And you know how important Vermont is in the knitting world too. So it should be no surprise that with all the destruction in their midst, a bunch of Vermont wool world types are donating proceeds to the cause.
Green Mountain Spinnery has posted this on their website:
The Spinnery will be donating the profits from our shop and on-line retail sales made from September 3 to September 11, 2011. Proceeds will go the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund. Expenditures from the fund will be used 100% for the unmet long term needs of survivors from the Irene disaster.
If you're not in the mood to buy stuff, but just want to send the money directly to aid victims, you can go to the Vermont Branch of the American Red Cross.
Thanks so much.
