Collecting for Blackwater Refuge
In April and May we are celebrating Earth Day (Earth Months) and 10% of all sales of Green Hairstreak in any base will go to a local Chesapeake Bay wildlife refuge, Blackwater Refuge. As of 29 April, we have collected $184.52. Check back here every week to see an updated number on the fundraiser.
A huge thank you to everyone who bought a skein or more of Painted Grasshawk in any base during February and March! We collected just over $500 for the local metastatic breast cancer organization METAvivor.
