What happens when you mix passion with a job? A fun project! As you all know, Deaf Prom 2008 is coming up! We want to make it the baddest prom ever. A DEAF prom, not just a prom for Deaf people. We are hiring only DEAF people to work at the prom. Caterers, photographers, DJs, chaperones, security, entertainers, "bartenders", and every little people working at the prom will all be DEAF. To make that happen, we need money. With that said, we decided to take what we are good at and make it into a fundraising opportunity. Sew we sew!
Textiles (fabrics) are so tactile and you know how we Deaf people love tactile things. What better than a fun opportunity to make things that we love and share them with other people to love too? At ASL EXPO in San Diego on February 23rd, we will be selling things for people to buy, like napkins, totebags, aprons, and burp cloths. They're also "green" so grab them while they're hot! Proceeds go to Deaf Prom 2008. We look forward to seeing you at the booth!
