We have a fabulous charity locator. We understand that many hospitals and other organizations do not want crochet items for donations. We are trying to locate organizations that accept crochet donations on an ongoing basis. In trying to participate with charities, we also recognize that not everyone wants to ship their finished goods across the country. There may be locations and charities within reach that may be very close to your own communities.
There is also a need to locate live crochet groups for people to attend. Finding these groups may be a tough task. We want to help you find groups that we know about. Our mapping program can map the world for locations. We are not limiting our listings to be only Canada or USA.
Charities must be accepting crochet based donations on an ongoing basis. Charities or organizations that are only looking for cash will not be listed on this map. Website address for researching about charity is required. Complete Mailing Address must be included. A short bio write up about the mission of the charity.
We will required the name of the group. A complete address where the group meets to be located on the map. Email address and/or contact information for the group. Short write up about the group. General Group Get Together Times, examples may be Tuesdays, or every other Monday. Or Weekly from September to April.
With any of the listings, it is the responsibility of the person donating items to do their own research about the charities. The crochet groups must be live in person attending events only. We are not responsible for groups that may have fees associated to membership. At this time there are no plans to list crafting shows or events that are only a few days each year.
If you would like to have a group in your area and/or are looking for a group in you area that isn’t on the map. We are listing only firm groups and charities on the map. Others in your area may be looking to. This is a great opportunity to connect with others.
I am asked everyday by organizations and individuals to get free yarn. Though I am granted some yarn to make projects and videos, I am not given excessive quantities. Most of the yarn I am given has a plan or project attached to it where I am accountable for the yarn. For personal use projects, I am like everyone else where I pay for my own yarn.
I have no influence with any yarn company or organization to distribute free yarn.
If you would like to be considered for listing, send me details to Inquiry@thecrochetcrowd.com
