Next sign up - (for January) held the end of December. You could win simply by being a chearleader for 20 minutes on one day of the month.


We are going into our 21st year of ... RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) program ... and to help raise postage funds for our group - I am holding a drawing for the original INDIE VIOLET and the hand crochet bear by Cheryl Polito (see photo above).

Each $1 donation - will purchase you one ticket for drawing. The winner will be selected this coming Monday. The paypal address to use is (3 L's in address)
