Fundraising results from Virtual Public Knitoxication 2020

It was another good Public Knitoxication. Thank you to the Fiberists for thinking up this great event in the first place...and hosting for three years now!

Solitude Wool pledged to donate 100% of our profits from this event to support anti-racism efforts and are pleased to pool them with the Fiberists and other vendors of this event for the NFC Momentum Fund started by Karida Collins, owner of Neighborhood Fiber Company in Baltimore. We are really pleased to have this money stay in our Chesapeake Fibershed and trust NFC to do good things with it.

We calculate our profit for the weekend to be $414.98. All the Solitude Woolies agree that we will round that up to $500.
