Rubellin, I'm sorry to hear that! If there's anything we can do so you can still participate, please lemme know, okay?
irishgreengables: The money is for envelopes & postage. Some people have sent SASE's (yourself included, I believe!) and a few people sent a little extra so that postage could be covered to everyone else. All together, I've thus far spent less than $6 on materials, (embroidery floss and a diaper pin to pin the bracelets to my pants :LOL) and at the end of the week I'll count up all the beads and go to A.C. Moore to fill in the extras. Then I'll go buy envelopes for those who didn't send them & start mailing bracelets out.
So to answer your question, you don't have to send the $2, because you sent a SASE, but if you want to contribute to the group you are certainly welcome to.
Please see my updated list! And get thee to a post office if you're not on it! :LOL
