What do you spend $5 on?

Want 2 patterns for only 5 bucks?!?! That is a killer deal and for a good cause!

This is the story of the Williams family. They are desperately trying to adopt a little girl named Anastasia.

Anastasia is 5 years old and currently lives in an orphanage and has since she was 17 days old. In Eastern Europe where Anastasia lives things are much different. Anastasia has downs syndrome which where she lives is essentially a death sentence preceded by a few years of hell. By the age of 4 or 5 children like her are sent to an asylum where they are strapped to their beds to live out whatever years their bodies endure.

 It is truly heartbreaking. This family is desperate to get the funds together before she is transferred. You see, after a child is transferred they are no longer adoptable.
They are stuck in hell until they die, typically from malnutrition.

The Williams have a 10 year old daughter with Downs and are fully aware of the responsibility and commitment a special needs child requires and they are ready to take that on whole heartedly.
Please, Please head over and donate.
Even $5 makes a difference.
That's where you come in. Donate $5, it takes you directly to PayPal and is just 2-3 clicks to help. ChipIn will then email you a receipt, simply forward me that receipt along with what 2 patterns from Inner Hooker you'd like and I'll send them your way! This is a one time thing, one special per person, and today only so please, please don't wait! They need help now!

Can't crochet but want to help??? Great go donate whatever you can just because it's the right thing to do! Skip your starbucks today and put that few bucks towards a greater cause.

Oh and for every $5 you do donate you are entered to win and iPad along with a few other great prizes.
