The past week and a half has been rough. Heartbreaking. Exhausting. I'll admit, I shed a few tears, thinking about what has happened to this country. I try to keep this blog to only cute kid stories, and information on crochet patterns and classes, but it's too much now.
But what can I do? I've written my senator. I've marched. I've looked into local groups for help. I've sadly gotten into an argument on Facebook (seriously, it helps no one. We all need to stop, and instead argue face-to-face). I'd love to donate a boatload of money to help out the causes I hold dear, but I'm a nanny and I run an Etsy shop. I'm not exactly swimming in cash.
So what can I do? How can I help? Well, I started off talking to my charge about how we will all fight to make sure the bully won't win. And now, I'm making hats. Yeah, they aren't going to solve anything, but I can take $15 worth of yarn, and make about 10 hats. For each one, I'll donate $10 of the proceeds.
