Fiskateers is more than just winning prizes and showing our layouts. It is challenging each other to be better people. It is caring and sharing. Last month Fiskteers issued a challenge to each of us to collect socks. These socks are being donated to homeless shelters. I was surprised that I had never thought about collecting so simple as socks- a basic need. I jumped on this challenge and made a hamper to collect the socks. I even donated 10% of sales for a week to buy extra socks. I organized a sock crop and lo, and behold, the sock fairy made a visit. I am not above making a fool of myself for a good cause.
I am very proud that we ended up collecting 310 pairs of socks. That is 3100 toes that will be warmer.
I enjoy the fun part of fiskateers, but this felt very rewarding.
