Day of Service

Today is a holiday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. here in America. It is also recognized as a day of service, where people are going out in to the community to provide help for charitable organizations. People who crochet have a very generous spirit, through out the year. That is part of the genetic makeup of a crocheter. What I would like, is for everyone to share contact information for charity organizations that are in need of items such as hats, scarves, baby blankets, afghans or any organization that is special to you. Please include an address or website where we can locate the information to send items. If you don't have an address, that is alright, Please feel free to comment anyway.

Now that you started this topic, maybe this link could come handy...
