Want a Gretel???

With 181 people confirmed dead, One thousand houses gone and over 4000 people now homeless due to the Victorian fires I was thinking about having a raffle with people donating to the bushfire fund to enter.



The thing is, someone beat me to it and thought a lot bigger than my train of thought had been going. They have fantastic yarny scrumminess as prizes so I am sending you over there.

Go look, donate and enter.......... Serendipity.



As for me, I'd still like to know you donated and I'd still like to give someone a chance to win a Gretel. So go ahead and enter both here and there :)



Here are the ones I made for myself and for Miss B's Nanna.















I will be using the same yarn : Cleckheaton Angora Supreme.

It will be black.



Donate at any of the listed charities:


For donations to the Victorian Bushfires Appeal:
National Australia Bank BSB: 082-001 Acct: 860 046 797
Or call 1800 811 700
Donations can also be via the Bendigo Bank online or at any branch.

Red Cross - Ph 1800 811 700 +++can take international donations online


Email me at inspired_by_chocolate at yahoo dot com dot au with how much you donated and put GRETEL in the subject line.

Every $10 AUD you donate gives you an entry.

So donating $50 AUD would give you 5 entries.


I will be casting on tonight and entries will close when I cast off.

Good luck and happy donating!!!


Editing to add - Shopping at Coles today also counts as they are donating it's profits to the bushfire fund today Friday 13th February 2009.

If you are anything like me today's shopping bill might be a little higher than normal as any chocolate purchases are totally justified.

So once again tell me how much you shopped and purely for my amuzement tell me the percentage of chocolate vs food was in your trolley. :)
