    What am amazing way to share your talents with others. I noticed that the article talked about knit items and that there was nothing mentioned about crocheted items. Will they accept items that have been crocheted? Perhaps we members of the Crochet Crowd Community, with Mickey’s support (of course), could make some hats or blankets or scarves to send to them. What do you think, Mickey? Can we do this? What is the address to send items to? Can’t wait to hear from you!

      Its a great idea. I put a link with the article… you will notice it’s Fuscia with their name. Keeping Kids Warm. That’s their website. Their contact info and etc are there to find out more info on mailing address and etc.

      We would certainly accept any yarn crafted items Katherine, and thank you! I’m at work at the moment and do not have the mailing address on me, but you should be able to find that infomation at the website.

      Donna is a knitter. Wrist problems prevent her from crocheting now, but she used to be bi-stitchual. I prefer crochet but can also knit. Amanda is a true bi-stitchual as I believe she has no preference between the two. We also have 3 other volunteer executive members (as per registered charity regulations) and a large support force of volunteer yarn crafters.

      We distribute hats, mitts and scarves to homeless teens, and also to various organizations in London who work with homeless and economically disadvantaged youth. We also make other items which we sell at local bazaars. That money is used to purchase socks for homeless youth, and also to purchase yarn so that we can continue making items.

    Incredible story, and so glad you were allowed to share it. She as been blessed with a God given talent and giving to others the product of that talent is letting the youth know someone cares.
