Help Children in Need: afghans for Afghans’ Youth Campaign

February 8th, 2010

Pin It

Our friends at “afghans for Afghans”, a charity that donates handknit and crocheted items to the people of Afghanistan, is collecting donations of wool (or other animal fiber) sweaters, vests, mittens, and socks for their Youth Campaign.  The shipment is going out in March so all donation must be received on or before March 1. Please consider whipping up a pair of mittens or socks in the next couple weeks and send it to the afghans for Afghan’s San Francisco collection center.  If you are up for a challenge, consider finishing up a hibernating UFO or starting a child’s vest to send.  Your wool gift will mean one more boy or girl is comfortable and warm in the harsh winters.  Afghans for Afghans is looking for knits for boys and girls ages 7-14.
