$5 of your purchase of Sakaki or Brandywine will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
Initially designed to help Japan after their devastating earthquake and tsunami, $5 for each Sakaki PDF pattern sold through the end of May, 2011 was donated to Direct Relief International and earmarked for Japan (from pattern sales through May 31, 2011): $2,705. Thank you knitters!
Beginning in June, 2011, $5 per pattern sold is donated to Doctors without Borders, which does not allow earmarking, but does wonderful work throughout the world. Like Brandywine, the goal is to sell 10,000 patterns, and I will keep donating until that number is reached, no matter how long it takes!
