Featured Charities

Many charities give away knitted or crocheted items to needy families and children. The organizations below are national in scope, but there are many local organizations that need help too. Check with your local knitting and crochet store, church or other non-profit organization to see how you can help. The websites of the organizations listed below usually have easy patterns to help you get started. You may want to use their patterns or choose your own.

Thanks for thinking of others!
