This community rocks. Or I should say socks! Check out this generous offer from East Tennessee Gayle for out next five contributors of $100 or more to the Tripawds 2010 Community Fundraising campaign …

this idea of cometdogs is just wonderful. not that anyone would need enticing, but you know, as they said in caddyshack…”how about a little something for the effort”. anyway…

i have this idea… from the day (literally the day) that gayle was diagnosed, i’ve been knitting socks. now i may not be the best knitter in the world, but i’m positive i’m in the top five (really, i’m good). so i make nice socks. i’ve knitted socks next to gayle through every chemo treatment, through every ‘rough day’, through every ‘rough night’…

so here’s my way of helping support tripawds –

i am willing to donate one pair of hand knitted socks (wool, with a smidge of nylon or bamboo for wear) to the next five donors who give $100 or more. that’s five pair of ‘knit during the worst of times, knit during the best of times’ socks. these carry special ‘gayle juju’ with them, and they are promised to make the owner’s feet smile. caviat is that they may have a few stray ‘gayle hairs’ knitted in, which i think is just good fortune!!!

what do you think??

We think that’s awesome and thank Charon for her generosity. We bet a little Gayle JuJu goes a long way, and we all love happy feet. Chip In at least $100 below with a safe PayPal contribution to qualify for socks – while supplies last!

I think we LOVE you Charon, thank you, what a pawesome offer!

My Mom knits. Will you bring your yarn out to Colorado with you and show her how you make socks? All she’s ever managed to make was legwarmers!

Thank you so so much, this is fantastic.

Sold! I would love to have a lovely pair of knitted socks with Gayle’s hair knitted in.  I like my feet to be smiling too – but I will have to be careful because Kobe likes to steal my socks.  I’m going to have to hide these from him!  big-grin

Kami (Mackenzie and Kobe’s Mom)

My sweet golden Mackenzie.  She became my angel on Dec 29, 2010 at the age of 8 1/2  although she was always my angel from the time we brought her home.  She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Sept 2009 and officially became a tripawd (front leg) on Nov 5, 2009.  She will be forever in my heart and now she's running free with all of our other tripawd heroes.  I love you Mackenzie!

OMD!  That’s a fantastic offer!  Are you sure it’s not a typo?  Shouldn’t it be a $1000 contribution?   A hand knitted pair of socks should go for so much more! 

Kami, you owe $900 more, my friend! smile

Ooops! way-confused Forgot to update this topic … many thanks to Cathy and Jane for their generous contribution in memory of Skyler! That means Gayle’s offer of socks is now complete. Good thing, ‘cuz Charon must be getting arthritis by now after knitting so much… we’re still waiting for someone to post pictures!

As of now, Holly’s hand knit mittens offer is still going on! So please keep those contributions coming and we’ll stop begging for help. Don’t forget about Tasha’s Challenge if you’re looking for an easy way to give a bit more. Thank you all for your continued support!

Thanks Comet for posting these pictures for me.  I’ve been wanting to post these for awhile now.  I just wanted to thank Charon and ETGayle for the beautiful knitted socks they made – all for the love of our tripawd heroes.  They even came with special washing instructions smile.  They are incredibly special and I plan to keep them in a safe place – otherwise Kobe (AKA Sock Monster) will have them in his mouth in no time!

 Thanks again Charone – I just love these socks! smile.
