The Month Of Kirby

Good Morning everyone!  I just wanted to let you know that everyone at Silver’s Knitted Treats is excited to announce a new Charity Event.  If you don’t know Satoru Iwata, don’t feel bad.  Unless you’re big into the Kirby series.  If you are and still don’t know, then shame on you!  😉  JK. For the entire month of August, Mercury will be knitting Kirby plushies in memory of Satoru Iwata – the CEO and President of Nintendo, who passed away from bile duct cancer on July 11th.  $19 from every $20 plushie will go directly to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation in Mr. Iwata’s honor.  For more details, including how to order your own, check out our new page: Trust me!  These little guys are SUPER cute.  You’ll want one for your own.  While you’re on a Kirby-get, you will be giving to charity.  So it’s a win-win!   🙂

New SDA Marathon!!!

Hello Constant Readers…
While you’re waiting for my post on MagFest, here’s the newest news from the SDA front. . . Empty and his buddies have put together another Charity Marathon. This time, they’re working to benefit Doctors Without Borders. This is a charity that will be helping people out over in Japan. Since there wouldn’t really be video games without Japan, the Guys and Gals over at SDA have decided to try to help…

Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) is a nonprofit effort dedicated to working in more than 60 countries to assist people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.

100% of your donations go to Doctors Without Borders, who are currently helping with the relief efforts in northeastern Japan. So, tune in April 7–10, 2011 for 60 awesome games played quick. They need your support!
