Just thinking out loud

I have two thoughts/questions rolling around in my head. Please give me your honest feedback...that's what I'm looking for.

I have been struggling to think of ways that we could raise awareness about, well, us. Not for any other purpose than to reach my main goal of charitable organizations beginning to come to us with things they need and us providing for them.

What keeps coming into my head is that even though our total number of items donated is big, I think the best way to raise a lot of attention would be for us to come together as a group and make one ginormous donation to one place, all from Homespun Helpers. This would not be mandatory, it could last until the end of this year, and I realize that getting everyone to agree one one thing and one place would be difficult. But what do you think?

I'm also lightly tinkering with the idea of asking for monetary donations somehow, somewhere. Folks in this group spend a lot of money on shipping, yarn, and other stuff...I'd like the group proper to be able to help out with that.

So yeah. Post away. Give me ideas, suggestions, complaints...I'm open to it all :)

I love the idea of a big donation of items to one place. It'll definitely get the attention of an organization and, hopefully, a little press to HH.

Plus, I like the challenge of setting a goal that we're all part of.
Let's DO IT! (just not mittens and/or socks; I don't know how to do those, yet.)
