Wowee!!  Challenge #27-2017 was completely pledged within 4-1/2 hours of posting it!   Kudos to all of our wonderful PSP slipper and washcloth makers who jumped right in on this one and finished it up in a hurry. For those of you who missed out, don't worry.......we will have another challenge coming up soon!

Most of our pledges for the challenges come in on our Facebook page. Sometimes pledges come in so fast there that we don't have time to get the challenge posted here on the blog because it keeps us busy keeping the numbers updated.   

As you see, some of our challenges (especially the smaller ones) get pledged very quickly; larger ones may take many days.

We have lots of wonderful, enthusiastic members from all across the country and hope that you will join us in our endeavor to warm the hearts and toes of women and children living in domestic violence shelters across the USA!
