Winter 2010 Newsletter!
How are you today? I hope everyone had a great holiday!
In today's newsletter, I'm going to talk about a couple of fun things we're doing here at Darn Good Yarn (DGY), some charity work you can help with, and of course some of our newer items! Worth the read!
Nurture. Empower. Promote A Life!
In case you haven't noticed, my goal with Darn Good Yarn is to help others while bringing you some fun and funky yarns from around the globe. Well, one day I reached out to this AMAZING group in Nepal, EWN. You can read about them here http://www.3sistersadventure.com/EWN/
We have come together and I had these bracelets made by women in the western part of Nepal.
I asked them to bead into the bracelets "N.E.P.A.L." this stands for Nurture. Empower. Promote A Life. (tm DGY 2010)It's a great reminder when you wear this bracelet that you have truly made a difference in someone's life. Click the pictures to read more about the bracelets. This first picture is of one of the instructors with EWN!
Darn Good Yarn and the American Red Cross:
The earthquake in Haiti is horrendous. In an effort to help, 5% of every sale of our premium recycled silk yarn will go to the the American Red Cross until the end of February. It's as simple as that.
Other BIG news that you can help with:
I often get emails from individuals and groups for donations. They all do very special charity work for their
communities. So, starting this weekend, we will have a special section of our website dedicated to a person or group once a quarter. In this section of the site you can donate to Darn Good Yarn wherein 100% of that money goes to these organizations by means of yarns that we carry at our cost. If you would like to read more about this great program, please CLICK HERE
This quarter, we will be accepting donations for Jake S. He crochets hats and hangs them around his town for those in need. You should read about his story HERE.
