Let’s Get Grannie Rita Some Wheels!

Picture 036

As many of you know I’m doing an auction this weekend to benefit one of my knitters – Grannie Rita. Grannie Rita and Nonna are the 2 ladies who do all the knitting for Bamboletta – so all those cute little sweaters are passed through their hands. I know for a fact that these two ladies hardly ever have the needles leave their hands – Rita makes at least one sweater a day and Nonna often tells me that she knits late into the night because she just can’t stop…. hmmm, I wonder where I get it from?

Rita told me a while back that all the money she earns from sweater knitting is going towards her buying an electric wheelchair. She has a very modest pension and lives in an appartment on her own so there isn’t much left over. When she told me this my heart nearly broke – Rita works so hard for us and I wanted to reall. Wanting to do something I decided to auction off one of my dolls – a coveted Little Buddy Fairy – in a  ‘Let’s Get Rita Some Wheels’ auction. I started this last night and we are already at over $400! And I’m taking donations for Rita as well and have made over $250 (donations can be made to info@bamboletta.com).  You are all AMAZING – together we are really going to make a difference in Rita’s life!

So the auction is here if you’d like to check it out! Fun times!

Thank so much everyone – you’re the bestest!


Sherri and Julie have just donated some goods to sweeten the pot – and Reggie donated clothing to keep this Little Buddy very well dressed! Thanks Ladies!
