    Very nice! I belong to a guild the has many charities we support as I am sure many people do so that would work!

    Great idea Mikey. I already donate blankets to our BC Okanagan branch of project linus – actually 16 blankets since last November. I am sure they will rejoice in blankets created on my next cruise.

    Greetings,

    The fact that the group went from from delivering 40 afghans to up to 366 afghans is great!

    Q – couldn’t you contact the charity to meet the ship when it docks to take possession of the blankets?

      We have tried that approach. More often then not, we are faced with rejection as being inconvenient for the chapters to pick up. It’s our responsibility to fully deliver the afghans to the chapter according to some we have approached. This is what led to this decision as well.

    Love your effort for crochet donations. Might I suggest a file of what and how one finds the perfect donation for your newbies or helping challenged. I’m noticed several crafters stumped until I explained unlimited possibilities. In todays pdf age it can be shared easily.

    That sounds like a better plan and keeps your shipping costs down…spreads the load and makes life easier for all. The afghans come out so cute it would be hard to part with them but whoever receives them is a lucky lucky person. So much talent in this group. Just love all the ideas and awesome crochet you guys to on the cruises.

    Its a brilliant idea, it must be a nightmare to pack all the afghans up this way they go to people close to the Cruisers heart😊

    that’s very cool since some charities even project linus are really run by small grass roots organizations they can easily be overwhelmed by so many afghans at once I know in Philadelphia there was one lady that picked up the afghans from the drop sites, took them home and washed them to be absolutely certain they were clean then took them to the children’s hospitals and other sites they donated to. More than 10 at a time could be overwhelming let alone nearly 200 I don’t know where she would have stored them until she could wash and distribute them

    I think that is a great idea. We all know someone that can use the blankets. I brought home 20 from the Southern Caribbean cruise. The battered women’s shelter here was so very appreciative. Once again y’all are so awesome to keep making our cruises better and better.
