We have been thinking about how best to celebrate the life and world of Kathreen Ricketson. Kathreen’s online world, Whip Up, was a place that so many of us loved to visit.
We have an idea.
Of course, it’s an online idea.
Starting on Friday, May 24, running through the end of Tuesday, May 28, we invite you to post a link to your favorite Whip Up post. And we hope you’ll encourage your readers to make a contribution to the education fund that has been set up for Kathreen and Rob’s two children.
Two goals here:
1. Celebrate this wonderful person’s life and work.
2. Raise funds for the education fund that has been set up for Kathreen and Rob’s two children. Information on that fund can be found here.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Ravelry, your blog–wherever you’re online, please help spread the word. Pinterest? Reddit? Bring it on!
Here at Mason-Dixon Knitting, we will be posting our favorite links and also offering a little gift to those who make a contribution to the fund for Kathreen and Rob’s children’s education.
Of course, the little gift is something to knit.
For those who would like to go ahead and make a contribution, the details are here.
We all marvel at how an invisible, ethereal place like the Internet can bring people together. We hope you’ll join in this effort to remember Kathreen and Rob, and to help her family.
