Have I done this one?
|Bridge and Beyond||A charitable project focusing on providing hand knit/crocheted items for homeless/needy men and women in central Ohio.||Website||I have not participated but have been following the blog for a few months now and plan on donating.|
|Embracing Hope||Not yet a 501(c)(3) organization, this project aims at putting handmade bears in the hands of children who are victims of abuse.||Website||I have not participated but would like to make one or two bears this year, if not more.|
|Head Huggers||Head Huggers is a project that puts crafted hats of all kinds into the hands of individuals going through chemo treatment.||Website||In Progress. I created a tutorial on how to make one of the hats. I plan to begin donating to this project soon|
|Knitted Knockers||A project to put light, breathable, realistic feeling knitting & crocheted breasts. These are used in place of silicone prosthetic pieces that are uncomfortable, heavy, and cause rashes.||Website||I have not yet participated in this project; however, I plan on doing so. The first step is to create a crochet and knitted knocker (one each) and take it to the local cancer center and see if they would be interested in having some donated. Then I'll go from there.|
|Miracles Happen||The purpose of this program is to provide women with handmade items for newborns to help a woman who does not have a family support group.||Website||-|
|Special Olympics Scarf Project||The purpose of this project is to create knit and crochet scarves using designated colors. The scarves are given to every special olympic athlete, family member, and volunteer. The scarves represent unity.||n/a||Yes. I enjoyed this project and plan to participate every year|
UPDATE: Sadly, the program has ended.
|Springfield Stitches for a Cause||This is a Charitable Fiber Arts Group with a focus on helping the local community through different efforts.||Blog||I have been following this group on Facebook for a little while and fully expect to donate items to the various causes as they are announced.|
