Fundraising for Fort McMurray Fire

This fire reminds me of the Monument Fire we had here in 2011.  I know exactly what the residents of Fort McMurray are feeling.  We left as we saw flames on the road and fire fighters coming in as we were driving out.  We also went through that some panic again as the fire moved North towards our friend's house when we thought we were safe.  I need to do something besides donate.  I want to raise funds by donating one of my handspun yarn that won First Place at the county and state fairs in 2014.

It's 316 yards at sports weight (18 WPI).  Details on the yarn are here.   I will mail it to the winner worldwide.  What do you have to do?

Please make a donation to Canadian Red Cross. There is a $10 donation minimum please.

If you are on Ravelry then just forward your email to me (aplanet4creation AT yahoo DOT com)with your RAVELRY name then post on THIS thread. If you aren't on Ravelry forward your donation email (aplanet4creation AT yahoo DOT com) with the subject "Handspun Loop Drawing" and I will post on Ravelry for you.

From the post I will do a random drawing and send the yarn to the winner.

I've done this before for Japan's Earthquake in 2011.  You can find the blog post HERE or the Ravelry thread HERE.
