Knitters of the World, Unite!

As some of you know, we here at You Forgot Poland! are always looking for ways to support and give voice to some worthy causes.

Here’s another one: The Red Scarf Project.

From the project’s web site:

Send warmth and encouragement to America’s college-bound foster youth. OFA needs thousands of handmade scarves to put in our Valentine Care Packages to these parentless youth attending college on their own. Your handiwork will truly be the personal touch in these packages and bring students the encouragement they need to move forward and graduate to a brighter future. For over 25 years, OFA has provided funding and family-like support to foster youth in transition. www.orphan.org

Nikko, a Silicon Valley youngster --- who, I have on the very best authority, is one of the most adorable and intelligent kids you'll ever meet --- has taken up this cause as part of his Homeschool Service Project. Won't you help him out? Click here to read Nikko's hand-written appeal and sign up to join. He's set a goal of 100 scarves by January 2008.

(Thanks to May for the heads up.)
