Fiberart for a Cause

Some of us find small ways to make the world a better place.
Some of us do so in a BIG WAY!

Once again the lovely and talented Virginia Spiegel is raising funds for cancer research.
She is hoping to raise $7,000.00 to add to the $215,000.000 she has already raised for this cause.

You read that right. This woman knows how to make a big difference. She gathers people
we to her who also care deeply about fighting cancer and organizes them so that wonderful things happen. Here is how the fundraiser will work - and I'll let you know how you can help down below.
