60 Scarves in 60 days Challenge

I found a new outlet for scarves for charity. Threads of Compassion is an organization seeking scarves, either knitted or crocheted to be a source of comfort and support for survivors of sexual abuse. First, I was simply looking for outlets for scarves to help with Dee's 60 Scarves in 60 Days challenge. The Threads of Compassion group offers a few free patterns and explanation of their organization. The finished scarves should be about 5" wide and around 65" long. Finished scarves should be mailed at their address in Chicago, Ill. See their site for more details. Scarves can be made by anyone. They do suggest that survivors of sexual abuse might choose to donate scarves to other survivors as part of their healing process. Donation may be made anonymously. If you are interested, check it out.

Do you know of any other charities that accept scarves?

Now let's see if I can find a cool photo for you to look at...

How about a Sneak Peek for you?
This item should be hitting the printed page sometime soon....
