|Children Receiving SAS Afghans|
Crocheting for Charity has become a passion for me--Heartmade Blessings , Stitches from the Heart, Scarves for Special Olympics, Binky Patrol and, particularly, the wonderful group, Share a Square where pictures of the children receiving their quilts inspired us to make 150 afghans for the upcoming Summer 2012 Camp Quality kids with pediatric cancer.
Unfortunately, Share A Square is ending at the end of this summer. The wonderful Shelly Tucker, group founder, will be going to school, learning to be a private investigator--how appropriate a link to this site. Most of us who had belonged to the group are now looking for a way to feed our love of crocheting and benefit a worthy cause.
Even, and somewhat especially, in these challenging economic times, we can let our hands and our hearts work to help others.
Hooks and Needles for Charity, is a list of charities I’ve found, including the ones listed above, yet I know there are so many others. If you have other groups you’d like me to include, find I have listed groups that are no longer active, or if you would like to receive this as a Word.doc, feel free to message me – L.J. Roberts
