tl;dr: I don’t agree with the Olympic Games taking place in a country that represses homosexual persons, so I’m going to knit a rainbow colored shawl / scarf / whatever and give it away for LGBT charity.
Let’s get started
Project “Rainbows Over Sochi” starts *now*.
I will knit Veera Välimäki’s Stripe Study Shawl - this example is from idesofmarch
from two balls of “Frische Fische”
One ticket costs 5€. You can buy more than one, then your chances at winning will be greater.
Please donate the money to a LGBT charity and send proof in the form of emails / screenshots / whatever to rainbowsOverSochi@gmx.de.
I will run a list of donations, so please let me know under what name you want to appear in the public list (yes, “anonymous” is an option^^)
The raffle is closed as soon as the Closing Ceremony is over, and I will randomly draw the winning ticket ASAP.
The Olympic Games run from February 7 to February 23, so that’s my knitting time.
I’ll post daily updates here, and on Ravelry: dannyKay’s Rainbows Over Sochi (it’s still a bit bare…).
If you don’t have a favorite charity, my friend Lara has listed a few on her blog.
If you have questions, let me know in the comments or on Twitter: danielaKayB.
Awesome Idea! How about you propose some well-suited LGBT-themed charities though?
I hope that some of my more educated readers will suggest a few charities. Then I’ll list them here
