Letter Writing

I was thinking of another idea for 2008. We create a form letter that could be sent to other organizations or individuals who run other charities or who go out there and see what is needed. The letter could be something like this:

In 2007, Homespun Helpers created and donated over 3,000 items to charity. Because our members can donate to any group they choose so long as what they are contributing is home made, we donated as a group to a variety of groups and charities that asked for items for people in need.

In 2008 we'd like to be a little more ambitious, and we are asking you for your help. We are not asking you to donate to us or contribute anything tangible. But we would like to know what you see as being needed. Are there groups we should donate to that are dear to your heart? Are there groups you are donating to that you think could use some homemade items as well?

Let us know where we can be of service and we will be happy to add those groups, those needs, to our list.

Something like that. What do you think?

awesome idea, and actually something i was thinking of for the building up of more charity crafters! we could do one for charities (and i've got a HUGE list of charities already going) and then another one that we could send out to crafty bloggers.

i was also thinking a poll for crafty bloggers would be helpful, as well as a questionaire for those willing to fill one out, to give us a better idea of how we can reach the blogging crafty community better.
