Gratitude, even before the fact

Stephannie sent me this beautiful picture this morning, to forward on to all of you who have been so generous in offering to help the girls at the orphanage/school in Tibet. There's one big box of hand-knit goodies on its way from St. Louis (thanks to the organizational skill of master knitter Margaret O'Connor) and I'll have another in the mail within a week or so, filled with hats and other goodies from knitters here in Ann Arbor. Stephannie's promised us more shots of the girls modeling their gifts as soon as they arrive.

I can't stress enough, too, how much they still need your help. So if you're no whiz with a knitting needle, please remember that you can donate money to Stephannie via PayPal using her email address Easy as pie! And considering they're currently digging up cash to buy mittens for all the girls, which are $1.40 per pair, you can see how parting with ten bucks seriously helps out.
