Have you heard of this? From their site:
Pink Christmas - What is it?
Pink Christmas is a annual Girlfriend Give and Get. You make a handmade Christmas Gift(or you can purchase a handmade gift from one of our sponsors if you want to join but don't think you are crafty) for a mystery girlfriend around the world and another girlfriend will be making something for you - only to opened on Christmas morning.
It is only an optional $15.00 donation to sign up. Sign up fee is donated to the Pink Christmas Family for 2008.
This year Pink Christmas will be sponsoring a entire family - they are amazing. They have immigrated to Washington D.C. from Africa and are beginning their new life. They have 4 amazing children. Ages 12, 8, 2 and just a few months old. The sweet mother just had twins but one passed away and the other little boy is still in the hospital weighing just a few pounds. They need everything that you could think of to begin a new life in a new home. All the money will go to helping them get the necessities to do just that.
I think this sounds like a really neat idea for us craft bloggers to get behind. I signed up a few weeks ago and wanted to get the word out there before sign-ups are closed (this Thursday, July 31st!). Just go to the Pink Christmas blog and follow the directions to sign up- partner for the give-and-get will be announced by September 1.
