A LOT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THEN
What is important is the project suddenly hit critical mass. When I signed up, I was #81 on the list and the number of links was going to be limited to 100. Just before I left for Tucson (I went to Tucson for another chasing & repousse workshop but that will be another post when I put the finishing touches on the project. ) I mailed the link off to the organizer Peter D'Enbeau and soon after I arrived I found out my link was #60 on the chain.
And thanks to Peter's idea and people talking about it in the Facebook group, suddenly we had people from all over the world asking how to participate and could they still send a link and it looked like there would be over 100 links.
Then Peter headed out to Tucson too and while he was gone, I think the postie went on strike and just gave up trying to deliver all the packages to Peter's shop. It was two trips to the post office to pick up all the bins. (UPDATE: According to Peter there were 70+ waiting for him when he got home)
Now we have people who have volunteered to find out about crowd funding the printing of books and posters so more money can be raised for CERF+ plus some other ideas that are being tossed about.
Here is a link to the public group, on Facebook if you want to find out more. This should work for those of you who don't have a FB account.
And the work is amazing.
Here is a photo of the chain so far - this does not have all the links that arrived last week and links are still arriving. The number of links so far (on and off the chain) is over 140!
