Hooks and Needles for Charity

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  If you have other groups you’d like me to include, find I have listed groups that are no longer active, or if you would like to receive this as a Word.doc, feel free to message me –
