Red Scarf Project 2007
Care packages from family were such a big thing in college, especially in the earlier months and years. Can't say that I was ever a recipient of frequent care packages...
Now that we've helped with Caps to the Capital and Warm Up America, it's time to support the Red Scarf Project 2007. The Orphan Foundation of America is collecting red scarves to send to unadopted foster youth in college:
The red scarves that knitters and crocheters make for this project will be put in Valentine's Day 2007 care packages for these very brave young people who, despite many hardships, are attending college. Getting these packages will let them know they are cared for and hopefully give them encouragement to stay the course. Think of the scarf you make as a hug for someone who, despite all odds, is working hard to get an education and trying to make his or her life, and therefore the life of our extended community, better.
See the guidelines, and knit fast! They are only accepting scarves through January.
