I have a good friend who is also a knitter, she's over here.
Anyways, her son is doing a readathon for MS, and his Fundraising Homepage is here. While his goal of $1000 is pretty ambitious, I've been told by Natasha that he get's estatic for every donation that comes in, no matter how big or small, so even if you can manage $5 he would be thrilled. And it all goes to help MS. Your help would be GREATLY appreciated, twofold - by a very happy 5 year old, and by those suffering this disease.
