Web of Yarn Wednesday: DudeCraft.com

I’ve mentioned Paul Overton and his wonderful website DudeCraft.com before, but I think now is the time to go into it more deeply, especially when the crating community is needed to help.

Paul has wonderful crafts showing wonderful craftsmanship everyday on his blog, but a few posts back he wrote about his friend Killian who is battling a rare form of cancer. Killians family want’s to collect thousands of cranes to throw a party for Killian. Here’s the post with the address and all of the information.

Killian also cut an album, the proceeds of which will be going to Killian’s foundation which supports integrated therapies for kids with cancer. The kid is 16 years old, and I am frankly blown away. Here’s the CD post, if you’re interested.

I really think that this is one of the big factors of the crafting community, big-hearted crafters from around the globe can make a difference if they put their minds to it!

    Thanks so much for being part of the crane effort. Turns out, there were over 12,000 cranes at his memorial. It was beautiful. Thanks again.

    Paul
