For the remainder of the month of January, 50% of pattern sale proceeds will be donated for relief efforts in Haiti. 16.01.2010
ETA: During 16-30 of January I sold 2 Quadra’s and 5 Mayla’s, instead of sending 50% (10.5 € - 13.5 USD) of the profits I rounded up and sent 20 € (25.8 USD) to Haiti via AMI (a Portuguese Non Governmental Organization, private, non-profitable and independent) that worked in the field helping Haiti people. Thank you so much!
