However, in my home town, kids scarves are banned from schools... About a year ago, a girl died on a school bus because her scarf was too tight... They didn't notice until it was too late. So now in our entire city, scarves and hats with strings are banned from schools and I would feel reluctant to give it to the charity if I know there's that "slim" chance of it happening. (I know, I know - there's always that one case that ruins great ideas for people, eh? hehe!)
I love the idea of giving scarves to homeless people / people in need though - great idea! Our Canadian winters get pretty cold, so i'm going to check some shelters around here.
