I've been really bad about updating this journal, so sorry. Between computer issues (Lion is a memory hog!) and fundraising for Relay I've been super busy!

Relay is this Friday, and there's still time to donate! We have some awesome fundraisers for Team GEEK this year.

First up - this year we are auctioning off a hand-knit Doctor Who scarf and a hand-knit Dalek! I know a few of my LJ friends have been wanting a Dalek, and my friend & teammate [ profile] wtf is delivering. Every $5 in donations gets you one ticket in the raffle. Donate to me for the scarf (please say it's for the scarf raffle in the notes field), or to Julie for the Dalek (again, please say so in the notes). Donations recieved up until noon on Friday will count (after that we'll be setting up & not as easily able to go online). You can also donate to us in person at our event & get in on the raffle!

The night of the event we will have photos with costumed characters, Disney Princesses and Ghostbusters, for a $1 donation. Bring out the kids or kids-at-heart to get a photo with their favorite character! Details on where, when, & how to get there are at our website, on the event info page (there's even a Google map link!) We'll also be selling sweet treats, raffle tickets for some fun items (including Ravinia lawn tickets), and face painting!

Last, but certainly not least, we have an online auction going on! Check out the lots & details at our team blog,

Think dry thoughts for us Friday night, and please come join us if you're local! We'd love to see you!

Hi all!

Sorry for not posting the winner earlier but after being up for 26 hours straight with only closing my eyes for about 5 minutes while Carole showered, I kind of needed to pass out. So I did for about five hours and now I'm a bit more awake & coherent.

Relay for Life! )

The Dalek winner is.... )

Okay, I know a lot of you out there really want a knitted Dalek. I've lost track of how many people have begged or even tried swiping some of the Dalek family that I've made. I've been telling people no, because as much as I'd love to make a ton of Daleks, it's really REALLY painful to knit.

Then my friend had an idea. I'm in the process of knitting one last Dalek, pink with hot pink, to raise money for Relay for Life. (sorry for the crummy picture, my camera is misbehaving and my phone isn't getting signal to upload)

I'm *trying* to get it done in time for Relay but it's iffy. I can't do more than two rounds at a time, with LONG breaks between, or I'm in a lot of pain. But I'm making every effort to get it done by the night of our Relay, which is Friday August 13th.

I bet you're asking now, how do I try to win this awesome Dalek? It's very simple!

Donate to our Relay for Life team. For every $10 in donations you get one raffle ticket (so if you donate $50, you get 5 tickets). Make sure you put in the message field that you are entering the Dalek raffle!!

You can donate to me, at my Relay participant page or you can donate to my team, Team GEEK (or even to one of my teammates). I'd prefer if it's to me, since I can see that in my participant center, but as long as the donation goes to someone on my team and you mention the Dalek raffle in the message, you'll get the raffle ticket.

We also will take raffle donations during the event! It will be the same, $10 per ticket. I plan to draw the winning ticket toward the end of the Relay event so maybe 4 or 5 am Saturday morning. Winner need not be present! As long as I have some kind of way of contacting you (so make sure to put your phone and/or email in the donation form!!), I'll get the Dalek to the winner somehow :)

All of the money for this raffle is going directly to the American Cancer Society.
