First Friday Journal Club: charitable interests in medicine, tropical diseases, and technology
A huge thank you to the FFJC for completing 100 squares for Knit A Square.
A special thank you to Ms. Allison Howard (below) who took her knitting needles all the way from Tampa to New Hampshire over the holidays and returned with 50 completed squares.
Please take a few minutes to watch the video below on the Carter Foundation's efforts to eradicate the "neglected tropical illnesses that have disappeared from most of the world."
If you think the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is interested solely in libraries and technology, think again...
Okay, we all can't roll with the big dogs, but we can do our little bit. Keep knitting, and fellas of the journal club...donations of yarn and or funding for postage readily accepted!!
