Virginia Spiegel is at it again!

For those of you who don't know about the Fiberart for a Cause project, you really need to.

Virginia Spiegel began the project in 2005 as a small fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. It took off in a big way, with people donating fiber postcards from all over the world. These postcards were sold for a $30 donation to the ACS. To date, the project has raised $130,000.

Virginia has brought the postcard project to a close but has decided to implement other activities to help keep the fundraising rolling. She writes an awesome newsletter called Art, Nature, Creativity, Life. It includes her musings about life, a haiku and gorgeous photography.

She is compiling what she considers the best issues (personally I love them all, I don't know how she chose!) into an e-book. The e-book will be released in October and will be available for a minimum donation of $25 to the American Cancer Society. As a subscriber to her newsletter, I strongly recommend picking up the e-book when it comes out. Not only is it sure to be extremely inspirational, it will also benefit a most worthy cause!!

THANKS VIRGINIA for all the hard work you put into raising money for the American Cancer Society!

Lynn - Thank you! The fun part of an e-book is that you can keep adding things. So I have doubled the number of poems and just keep adding photos and more photos. I do think it will be, "An e-book for the creative soul in all of us."

Warm regards,
Virginia
