I started Handmade Especially for You in Sept 2008. We make and distribute "comfort scarves" to abused women. Since we started we have donated 1500 scarves!!!!! Most of the women have never before received a personal gift, much less a handmade one. Given their low self-esteem, they are amazed that anyone has thought about them at all. The directors of the 11 shelters to which we distribute our scarves tell me that receiving a scarf helps to begin to raise the woman's self-esteem. Such success inspires us to make and deliver more scarves to more shelters. We need you to knit and or crochet scarves, donate yarn, needles, crochet hooks, etc. Thanks in advance for your support.
