Selling a Scarf for Samaitan's Purse and Sudan

As mentioned in my previous post, I have felt a personal call to do something for the people in crisis in Sudan.  Samaritan's Purse have been faithfully feeding and tending to over 22,000 refugees from the Nuba Mountains.  These refugees have escaped brutal persecution.  On Thursday, November 10, 2011 the country of Sudan dropped 4 bombs onto the their camp.  Samaritan's Purse is in urgent need of funds to continue giving life-saving aid.
I am selling a hand knit scarf I made via an ebay auction this week.  If interested, you can bid on the sale here.  This sell will end on Thursday, November 17, 2011.  My original plan was to use ebay Giving Works and have them process the sell and donation to Samaritan's Purse.  After reading the fine print I decided that wouldn't be the best option because they retain a pretty substantial fee for processing and they hold the donation for 45 days in case you change your mind about donating.
I will be giving 100% of the selling price to Samaritan's Purse and not keeping anything to cover my expense to make, pay seller's fees on ebay or ship this scarf.  If you have any questions feel free to email or comment. 
If you would like to make a donation to Samaritan's Purse you can do so here or if you would like to join me in selling an item to donate, let me know and I will be happy to link it here.  If you are unable to support this cause financially, please remember to pray for these people.  Thank you!
