Alli needs wheels AND NATCROMO

I interrupt our crochet content with a message for my local readers.... (Crochet content follows)

Our teenage neighbor has a friend who needs a van to transport her and since we love Liz and she is using KNIT to raise funds, I just had to volunteer to help.  I'm asking LOCAL friends...
At this time, I'm not asking my long distance friends as it may cause too much mayhem for Liz to collect funds and handle shipping costs.

Here's Liz's message:

Hello beautiful people of the world! I'm Liz B. , a sophomore at ** High School. I have the wonderful opportunity to go to school with a girl named Alli. Anyone who has the pleasure of meeting Alli knows how special she is, and how quickly her smile can affect you. Alli was born with cerebral palsy and is in desperate need of a new wheelchair accessible van. Our community has organized a Wheels for Alli campaign to help her family out. The Hundred Club at our school is a way for individuals to join the cause and raise money. I am selling knit headbands for $2 each and if you would be interested in purchasing one, it would support a great cause. If you would like one, just let me know what color! I have white, cream, light rose, pink, hot pink, red, light orange, neon orange, light yellow, yellow, gold, electric green, dark green, baby blue, turquoise, sparkly turquoise, blue, teal, dark teal, lavender, plum, black, and rusty brown. If you have any other requests, just let me know and I would love to have an excuse to get more yarn! I really appreciate the support!

Thanks so much, 

LOCAL friends.... if you would like to help, or order a headband, send me an email with your color preference and mailing address, and I'll forward it to Liz.  Since Liz is still a teen, I took out her last name and Alli's last name and location. I can see Liz's house from ours and she has babysat for us and Charlie many times. 

Thanks for indulging me.

All my new readers, I assure you, I have never done this type of plea before and it is not typical for me to interrupt crochet talk.
