A big THANK YOU to all of you wonderful ladies for making pledges and adding to your initial pledges so that we could complete this challenge in less than 24 hours! We have such a terrific group.

We are also going to do a combined Happy Hands and Cozies for Pets challenge for Tundra Women's Coalition. We have many new members since our last Cozies or Happy Hands challenge for a shelter who may not be familiar with them.

Basically, if a shelter has a program in place to teach crocheting or knitting or have residents who already know how, we like to send them supplies to help them out. We all know how much our crafts/hobbies help us to relax and make us feel better and we want to "pass it forward". Also, many shelters now have a shelter or program in place to allow residents to bring their pets with them. Many women will not leave an abusive situation if they have to leave pets home to possibly suffer abuse when they leave. Pets like nice cozy blankets/pads to lay on and cuddle with, too, to help ease their anxiety.

If anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to ask us. We will be putting up the Cozies/HH challenge shortly. We hope you join in. Even a pledge for one skein of yarn or one pet mat is great!

Rachel, Lynne, and Judy
