Charity Knitting and Crochet Orgs

So many of you have asked which charity knitting and crochet groups I make items for. Today, I'm sharing my charity knit and crochet orgs that I am making items for over the summer ... here we go.

Love to make scarves? This is the charity for you! Scarves from the Heart brightens a cancer patients day with colorful, warm scarves. (also a group on Ravelry!)

Tails of Hope Foundation, “Blanketed With Love™” Campaign provides soft, comfy blankets for sick dogs.

Knots-of-Love.org donates your handmade chemo caps to adults in need.

On Ravelry? Check these groups ...they are active and offer community, pattern info, and support for people in need.

Hearts of Love - Various projects to support children and adults who are in need of comfort. (interview with the founder, Teresita Valadez) Enjoy the community of like minded, caring members and the wonderful patterns and projects that are being posted.

Stitches for Africa - Many varying handmade projects await your special touch for families struggling to survive.

Knitters for Obama- Ongoing projects to help keep you motivated with your charity knitting and crochet and a wonderful sense of community. You don't have to be an Obama voter to participate, just a can do attitude.

There are so many charities that need your help. These are a few of the ones that I feel comfortable with...you will discover you're own. Count your blessings and remember to reach out to others. Knitters and crocheters have the ability to change the world and bring comfort to others.
