The Seacoast Local (H)EAT Campaign will work throughout this winter to raise $50,000 to help provide food and heating oil for needy families in York and Rockingham counties. Seacoast Local is a not-for-profit organization. Their mission is to encourage citizens to be active participants in the life of their community. They're the peeps I helped with the "You Are Where You Eat" fabric bag, which is sold at local farmers' markets. Many of my favorite stores and restaurants are Seacoast Local member businesses.
I'm working with the Holiday (H)EAT group. We're going to create visibility and fund raise from Thanksgiving through New Year's, starting around Dec. 1st to coincide with Buy Local Week. One of the ways we're raising funds is by making hand stitched felt ornaments which will be sold by Seacoast Local businesses, with all proceeds going towards the (H)EAT fund.
Hey, if you wanna help me make some ornaments -- drop me an email and I'll send you the patterns. C'mon Erica, you've got tons of free time... right? Har, har, har! Seriously though, if you feel like chipping in -- [JASON: How are you making constructive use of your time these days?] get in touch.
