Starting Today at noon, the Geeks With Issues will once again be hitting the virtual trail -- Oregon Trail, that is. For 24 hours straight, the Geeks will hunt 8-bit squirrels, ford electronic rivers, and try to avoid cholera, all while raising money for some outstanding charities. And you can be a part of it! Just make a pledge!
Please check out http://www.geekswithissues.com/charity for information about the event, the charities, and how to donate.
To help get people enthused for this event, Tough Love Knitters is participating in a special give-away. The lucky chosen viewer will get a custom-made, knitted, "geek craft" item. This can be anything the winner wants!* A hat, gloves, pillow, Nintendo DS cozy! I will work with the winner to design something he or she will really love.
To get involved, just go to http://www.geekswithissues.com/charity and join the live chat. You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, saying you want to be entered.
No pledge necessary to enter (though, of course, we would appreciate it).
Some examples of knitted "geek craft" are below:
NES Controller Tissue Cover
Ninja Turtle Beanie
Please consider donating to "The Battle Against Dysentery"!
* max $30 for raw materials
