This is a public thanks to the 75 people who have contributed between $1 and $75 each to my Indiegogo fundraiser for Hook to Heal, which is the next book that I’m working on. I’ve got the book’s outline and draft ready and I’m super excited about getting to share it with you this fall. The fundraiser has a little bit less than two weeks to go and still needs 19% more funding.

Special Crochet Thanks!

Thanks also to the other people who did contribute to the campaign but chose to leave their names anonymous. You are not on this list but you are so appreciated!

If you have contributed to the campaign and you don’t see your name here, it may be because you have set your Indiegogo contribution to anonymous. You can change that by going to your Indiegogo account and changing your visibility on your contribution. You can also email me to let me know that you want to be recognized for your contribution and I’ll update this post with your name!

And More Crochet Thanks

Not everyone has cash to give. That’s okay! Thank you to every single person who has spread the word about this project through their blogs, social media and other channels. And thanks to every single person who has sent me an encouraging word saying that they are looking forward to Hook to Heal. You are so special.

What Hook to Heal Needs

Hook to Heal is now 81% funded. This is terrific! If that’s all I get, I’m still grateful for every penny. However, if I do not reach my full funding amount then I have to pay a 5% higher fee to Indiegogo than I would have to pay if I do reach that amount. All of my funders would probably prefer to see that money go towards making Hook to Heal as great as possible for all of us so it would be terrific if we can push that funding over that final mark.

How to help:

  • Donate $30. Get a copy of the print book when it’s ready. Get a copy of Crochet Saved My Life in a few weeks. Plus get free 300×300 sidebar advertising on Crochet Concupiscence for a full month worth $100.
  • Donate $10. You’ll get a digital copy of the book this fall. Plus if you want you can get a free 300×100 ad on Crochet Concupiscence to spread the word about your own sites/projects/work.
  • Donate just $1. Every little bit helps. Plus you’ll get your name into posts like this (free advertising and public acknowledgment!) And you’ll get your name in the book’s acknowledgments.
  • Tell someone else about this project. Hit those social media share buttons. Add a comment about why you think people might like this.

    Hi Kathryn,
    Just to let you know I have blogged about it today too. My blog is only 4 months old so I don’t even get hundreds of views per day but I hope you get some contributions from the few people that read me.
    I do hope you get the full funding.

      Thanks a million! Every little bit helps and I so, so appreciate it. Will be sure to mention it around the web and hopefully send some new readers your way.

    This is wonderful! I’m a diabetic and at times I have been in real health trouble, battling with all I had, but aside from God’s strength and grace, I found a lot of comfort and encouragement in using my hook to benefit orphan children. It has given me much joy, and I think that has also brought healing in many ways. Anyone who has had to struggle with a physical problem in a world of apparently healthy people will understand the comfort I am talking about.

    Hello! I donated to your project anonymously, but I thought you might want to know I have advertized your Indiegogo campaign on my book review blog in as a postscript to a review of Crochet Saved My Life. You can see it at I have only just started to review books, so I only get a little trickle of readers, but every little bit helps, right?

      @AmicaDeLibrorum Thank you so incredibly much for spreading the word about the campaign and for reviewing my book. It is so very appreciated. I’ll make sure to link back and spread the word to others in the week to come!
