Hi,

Sorry if this should go in Crafts For Good Not Evil instead, since it is knitting-specific I thought it might be better here.  I saw this posted at KnittingHelp and thought folks here might be interested too.

The Red Scarf Project, a project of the Orphan.org, collects red scarves (and other unisex colors) to send in Valentine's Day care packages to college students who have aged out of foster care. These brave young people are going it on their own and trying to improve their lives and the community by attending college. The care packages are welcome tokens of encouragement to young people who otherwise receive little to no mail. Your scarf should be soft (any material), unisex design, and approximately 60 inches long by 5 to 8 inches wide. Machine washable is a plus, but it is not absolutely necessary.

The scarves are shipped to Orphan Foundation of America in January so they can be distributed for Valentine's Day.

This sounded like a neat idea to me.  And let's face it, it's one more reason to buy yarn! Wink And I like the idea that I could work on it over the next few months; there's no rush.

Anyone else in?  Check out the website (link above) for Red Scarf Project 2007 Headquarters.
