Bloggers Unite Day

November 9, 2008 12 comments

In support of Bloggers Unite Day, I am putting aside my crochet hook and my recycled bags to blog about an important cause. On November 10th, thousands of bloggers from around the world will unite to raise their voices on behalf of more than 40 million voiceless refugees. We blog to bring attention to this crisis and to join hearts and minds to help bring forward information, understanding and action.

Refugees United is a non-profit organization that helps refugees relocate family and friends through the use of the internet.

Refugees United provides refugees with an anonymous forum to reconnect with missing family. By registering with nick-names, scars, former locations and other markers only identifiable to family and close friends, everyone can remain ‘invisible’ to all but relatives.

* All refugees are welcome, regardless of conflict, place or time.
* Refugees United is an independent, non-political, non-religious NGO.
* No third party is involved. No official papers need to be filled in.
* The service is free of charge, easy and safe.

The Refugees United search engine is the first of it’s kind. Visit Refugees United to see how it works and to learn more about the work that Refugees United is doing.

So get the word out and lets spread the news in support of Bloggers Unite Day. More information on participating can be found at BlogCatalog. We can all make a difference and unite today!

Blog Action Day – Crafting with Recycled Materials

October 15, 2007 14 comments

On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind. In 2007 the issue is the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.

I hope you will join me in blogging for our environment today. I blog about the subject that is near and dear to my heart. Crafting and more specifically — crafting with recycled materials. Please consider using plastic bags, bread bags, vhs video tape, cassette tapes, old denim, and other recycled fabric to craft with. You can create some exciting projects by using recycled materials. I have many free patterns here for your use. Click here to see the full list of all the free craft patterns available.

By reusing these otherwise trash materials, you will be helping our environment as well as creating a wonderful recycled product. Recycled totes, purses, and grocery bags make excellent gifts. Please consider crocheting, knitting, weaving, or sewing with recycled materials today!

Bloggers Against Abuse Day

Today I blog not about crafts or recycled projects which is the normal topic here at My Recycled Bags but rather to stop abuse. I want to feature a local organization called Family Crisis Network who shortly will be known as Pend Oreille Crime Victim Services. This organization proudly works in the area the Newport, Washington area to prevent and advocate in matters of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and homelessness. They provide services for victims of all crimes in Pend Oreille County. Their web site is presented as an educational resource by the Family Crisis Center. If you are seeking help for yourself or someone you care about, call their 24 Hour Crisis line at (509) 447-5483 or 1-800-548-3133. If you live outside Pend Oreille County, Washington and are in crisis, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

Mission is to provide services to all persons who have been abused and to promote a safe environment from domestic violence, sexual assault, and for the homeless.
