ASPCA fundraiser

Emily from Fibre Town has graciously hosted a fundraising contest on her forum – so thought it couldn’t hurt to ask if you could give a little love.
Maya (selkhet on Rav) and her sister are raising money for Team ASPCA for the TD 5 Boro Bike Ride in May, and along with Emily  are doing a little giveaway for contest for folks that pledge – details available in Fibretown forum. which I link in my group.

I am upping the anti with some Lorna’s Laces Solemate in the Rainbow color way!
Here is the direct link to our fundraising page:
