Knitting for the Public Good

Last summer, I worked at the Legal Aid Society's Health Law Unit in Harlem, NYC. Obviously, the LAS has no money to be funding a little joe shmoe law student like me, so the Maryland Public Interest Law Project (MPILP) gave me a reasonable stipend to support myself while working 11 weeks at Legal Aid. On April 1, MPILP is holding their annual auction which raises money for law students from the University of Maryland and the University of Baltimore to work in the public interest legal sector. These placements include the House of Ruth, Homeless Persons Representation Project, Community Law Center, Coalition to End Childhood Lead Poisoning, Legal Aid Bureau, and the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. I've received a plea to make a donation to the auction. Soooooo, I was thinking about maybe donating the shawl that I've been working on to the auction and hopefully a few things I can finish before then. Do you ladies have anything that you would like to donate, that maybe you've made but haven't thought of a recipient or maybe you'd want to knit some things between now and April 1st to donate? It's a fantastic cause and we get to knit, which of course we love to do!!
