Change to Charity

posted May 20, 2017, 2:08 PM by Con Com
 After much deliberation and discussions with local fen, we are changing the charity for this year's ConneXions. It was suggested that more could be done by a smaller, local, charity with the amount we raise than could be done with a larger organization like Planned Parenthood.

We considered a number of options and have decided to use the portion of the proceeds of the raffle that go to charity for HIPS (
http://www.hips.org/) AND we will have yarn and a limited number of round knitting looms available (for those who like to have something to do while they are listening in panels) to make hats to be given to a local hypothermia shelter in preparation for the winter.
