The Dulaan Project 2007
As you may remember, last year, I've knit a box full of hats, scarves and blankets for this project. This year, I've decided to give a donation to this non-profit organization for a couple of reasons. Although I'd love to knit something for those cute little ones, I've decided against it for just one reason - Canada Post! Last years package cost so much on postage, that it was ridiculous! This time I thought, I'd rather give the money directly to the Dulaan project, since they not only distribute knitted items, but medical supplies and educational supplies as well. If you are interested you can read all about it here .
And I've decided to give a larger sum than usual, instead of giving little gifts to relatives and friends, this year. Once again, thank the Post office for it. One's loss is someone's gain. ;o) But really, friends and family, think about it for a minute! These Mongolian people need the help so much more, than you would need (not) a little something from me.
I do love to give gifts and will do so all over the year for birthdays and I especially like to give as a surprise for no good reason at all, just to make someone smile (well, that's the reason I'm doing it in the first place). ;o)
