I’m thrilled for the first Craft Hope Project of 2010!  And it involves knitting which makes me (and my goal of stash busting) even happier.  If you have a little time, a little yarn and a little love consider making a scarf for the Craft Hope Orphan Foundation – Red Scarf Program!

“The Orphan Foundation serves thousands of foster teens throughout the U.S. They provide college scholarships, connect them with mentors and internships, send them care packages, and testify for them before Congress. Each year 25,000 students ‘age out’ of the foster care system and the Orphan Foundation is committed to helping them become tomorrow’s successful citizens. They launched the Red Scarf program in 2005 to send red scarves to warm the hearts (and necks) of college bound youth. They began taking these donations to include in their Valentines Day care packages.”
