Dear Contributors, I would like to thank everyone for contributing to the
Special Knitting Forces. Unfortunately, I have lost my volunteer who was
sending the individual responses to all of the donors. Therefore, no
acknowledgment letters have gone out in the past two months. I assume that
is part of the reason why the contributions have dwindled. As far as we
know, there is still a need to help. We would like to keep the project
alive and will explore ways to advertise. Please continue to send your
contributions to us so that we can help the needy people of Afghanistan.
Sincerely, Special Knitting Forces
Our efforts have finally come
to fruition. The Special Knitting Forces donations are being distributed
by members of De Solay Daywa. Pictures of the distribution can be seen at
the following web site
www.haywardsunsetrotary.org/prod02.htm. We will continue to
collect and ship to Afghanistan through the Hayward Sunset Rotary and De
Solay Daywa. We will try to get a tabulation of the total amount shipped
to determine if we have reached a goal of a million sweaters. Regardless,
we will continue to send clothing because there is a need.
We are also in the process of attempting to respond to and acknowledge all of the donors. Please be patient if you have not received an acknowledgment. We will try to get to them all. For now, let us continue the great work by knitting and sending you contributions to us.
