Red Scarf Project 2007

Have you started your red scarf yet? What? Don't know about red scarves? The Orphan Foundation of America is a nonprofit that provides scholarship and support for teenage orphans who have aged out of the foster care system. They are asking for knitters and crocheters to participate in their Red Scarf Project 2007. The red scarves will be in Valentines Day care packages sent to the teens. Help spread a little love to these kids and let them know there are people out there that care. If you really want to get involved they have a virtual mentoring program, please check it out.

Yikes! My geraniums are blooming too. What are we to do?
Meanwhile, I was in Washington DC for Thanksgiving and bought beautiful wreaths for my front door at the National Cathedral garden shop.

I'm going to do it too. I've heard about it and think it's a great knitting drive.

Those are the kids that need a little extra encouragement--especially since they don't have as much support sometimes.
