We also received a lovely Thank-You note from Foster Care to Success (formerly the Orphans Foundation of America) for our Red Scarves from all the way back in January / February!

This is for all of us to share:

Good Morning,

Please tell everyone that contributed thank you so much for their generous scarf donations. We are delighted that so many talented knitters and crocheters chose to participate in the program. Each year we continue to be amazed at the generosity and creativity of the needle arts community.

Please know that the scarves really mean a lot to the students that receive them. For many it will be the first item they have ever received that is handmade just for them!
If you have any questions feel free to email me - Thanks again!

Director, Community Partnerships

New Projects Announced for October, November, December

Thanks to our fantastic crafters, over 40 pink projects will be donated this week to the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge in New York! We are grateful for everyone's attention to our deadline so that our projects can be distributed in time for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Below are our new projects to benefit The Doe Fund, and its "Boys in Blue" for the Ready, Willing and Able program, whose mission is to develop and implement cost-effective, holistic programs that meet the needs of a diverse population working to break the cycles of homelessness, addiction, and criminal recidivism.

These projects will be due January 20, 2012.
