Pausing for a Cause

The focus of the Shuttle Works Studio blog is weaving and other fiber-related activities. Posts on other topics are kept very minimal. Tonight, though, is an exception as world hunger is a cause close to my heart.


Bloggers Unite, along with Heifer International, have been waging a special campaign during the month of April to bring new awareness to world hunger, and how we, as individuals, might help. April 29th is “Unite for Hunger and Hope” day, and tomorrow, April 30th is “Pass on the Gift” day.

Individually we cannot solve a problem of this magnitude, but together, we CAN make a difference. What can you do? Please visit Heifer International at http://www.heifer.org/ and see how you can help. I’m going there now to make my donation.

  1. Update ~ my contribution to Heifer International went to the project in China, to help provide animals to subsistence farmers, in Sichuan Province, who lost so much during the earthquake(s) that struck a year or so ago. As I have two children adopted from China, I naturally have a special interest there.I’m planning to contribute again to Heifer in the future, towards sheep or llamas, fiber-producing animals for families who can use them in fiber-related income.Their catalog and the possibilities in it are quite wonderful.
