Karen Ball of Did You Make That, who is a children's publisher and of course sewing blogger, is raising money for the National Literacy Trust. I have pledged a donation and hope you will too.
Here is the link to details about the initiative in Karen's own words http://didyoumakethat.com/2015/08/13/the-made-up-initiative-launches/.
Pledge a donation via the Just Giving page, set a challenge, big or small, and if you successfully complete your make by the deadline of 10 September, you’re automatically entered for a prize giveaway worth more than £300. All you have to do is blog about, or email Karen details of your completed project at didyoumakethat[at]fastmail[dot]com. The winner will be randomly picked and the prize includes:
If you can't participate in making something in the time scale, just donate some money anyway! It’s for a really good cause.
