On my blog I posted just a few websites on crochet and knit charities. Last year as a HS Freshman I made a few knitted goods for a unfortunate family that my class council 'adopted'. I made a scarf for a 3 month old beenie bags for the boys there and Two slippers for the mom and dad. The teacher said that the family was overjoyed with my generosity. So here are a few sites that you can donate to :) Now that I am a sophomore I am forced to reside with my passion, but in my community there is a shelter where I will come to make a holiday dinner for both Thanksgiving and Christmas (Since I don't celebrate Christmas I will come help since I don't celebrate. But I also love to see smiles because they are priceless)!
