Red Scarf Project

The Red Scarf Project sends handmade scarves on Valentine's Day to college students who have aged out of Foster Care. This is really a simple project that has a ton of impact on youth who are without families. Please visit The Orphan foundation of America website for more info on how you can help! There are free patterns and more info on the specific sizes of the scarves. If you are a non-crafter, you can donate to the fund to help pay for shipping of these packages! Last year over 15,000 scarves were delivered!!! How awesome is that?!?! Way to go fiber community!

Anyone in the area: I'm thinking of meeting at 9 East 1st and 3rd Sat to hang out and whip up some scarves!!!!! Leave a comment and I'll give you more info on times and such :)

This year the Orphan Foundation is accepting the scarves from Sept.1- Oct. 31.
