Caron Square contest

Theonlyevidence brought it to my/our attention recently that Caron Yarn is having a contest encouraging people not only to use their yarn, but also to make squares for Warm Up America.

You send the squares together if you are working as a group, and the group who sends in the most squares wins a check for $300.

I am not sure if we count as an official "group," unfortunately. In other words, I don't know who the money would go to were we to win. But here is what I would like to explore.

If we try and make the most squares, could the $300 go to a charity that we vote on here? Would they send the check that way?

Can someone check that out? If the answer is yes, I think we'd have a pretty darned good motivation (and poor crazigriffen wouldn't be inundated with sewing projects :)

Tell me what you think!

Wow. That's a really cool idea. And perhaps we could also use a tiny bit of the money towards our website were we to win.

Well, again, I'm not sure if they would be able to issue the check to us at all. Not sure how "official" you have to be, but since we aren't an official not-for-profit or anything...I don't know how that would work. That is an interesting point though. Gorsh. Someday this group needs to become all growed up :)
