    Hey Mikey I know you are so busy going through photos, post and videos. I was hoping that you did receive my email with the photos of my charity donation..

    Thank you

    Do we have to use the patterns you provide to participate in the challenge or can we use our own personal favorite pattern(s)?

      You will show us the box and hold your hand over the return address and show us the address on where it’s going that is on the box. Your picture should be taken at the post office to show us you are mailing it.

    I haven’t done big charity work before, only personal independent charity. Since having Cancer this past year I’m now in REMISSION and am very excited to give back by joining your Charity Challenge! Looking forward excitedly to begin!

    Glad I saw this challenge! I will participate, but probably won’t be able to deliver items to my charity as a I am in a wheelchair. But I will try.

    I do afghans and hats all the time to donate…. May check this out though since I am always looking for patterns that are quick and easy

    Michael,

    Thank you for the challenge to donate items for a good cause! It reminded me that I have been wanting to make my jigsaw puzzle afghan and donate it for Autism Awareness since their logo is a jigsaw puzzle. I won’t be entering the challenge with this one since it is not one of the patterns, but it will be for a great cause! Thank you for all that you do for the crochet crowders!!!

    This sounds like fun! I love that you will have some for us beginners to join in. I’m just learning and right now only doing Tunisian that I learned from Mikey’s videos so I’m anxious to see on the 10th if I’ll be able to crochet along for charity! Thanks for always making your site one I can come to and be inspired!

    I would say Bang on. The only part I was confused about was, you said send to your local charity, but then it gave out your address to send too?

      Really? Let me review that. I am sure I never typed that but maybe I did. We aren’t collecting donations here at home. We want people to choose a charity that means something to them.

      Oh you are referring to the email address of where a photo of your donations is to be sent for the qualifying of the prize. It’s not the physical address to where to send the donations. – Michael

    Always “bang on” and never “out to lunch”…so we wait until the 17 chosen projects are added here on Apr 10th and then choose one or more of them for our charity or charities??? Make our items and send you a photo plus an optional photo of the items being donated to qualify for the mega prize?? Or do we need a photo of any of them being received to qualify as an entry??

      We have 17 projects chosen. I am working on the videos now for them. You need to wait until April 10th for the choices that qualify for the prizes.

      You can choose what you want to do. When done, take photo(s) and send us an email with your photo and name. For the mega prize, it’s not only your finished donations that matches our selections but also a picture showing that you are actually delivering it to your charity of choice.

      For example, say you do 3 afghans… You have three entries for the Afghan Category… If you show that you are delivering your afghans with a picture of handing it to a charity or school or shelter… then you get 3 entries into the Mega Prize.

      Hopefully that makes sense.
