Knitting for the homeless

Recommended Posts

Hello,
 
I hope you are having a great Sunday!
 
I am a student at Georgia State University, and through my years living in ATL, I have seen the homeless go through terrible experiences definitely in the winter.  
 
I felt useless that I couldn't help them because I am a college student with barely any money. However, I do have the skills to knit, and I thought I could knit scarfs for the homeless.
 
My goal is to make 200 scarfs for the people in Atlanta who do not have a home this winter.
 
I wish I started earlier, but I am pushing forward and would like help completing this goal.
 
I am messaging you to see if you and your members would like to knit a scarf for someone in need.
 
I will provide the yarn and everything you need. I just need the helping hands!
Please get back to me on how many people would like to help so I can provide you the yarn.
 
Thank you, and looking forward to hearing back with you!

I'm glad Lilly brought this thread back up; it had slipped my mind.

Mary Jo is correct about reposting in the charity section to be noticed as a request.

Does it matter if the scarves are crocheted? Are there any guidelines about width or length? What is the deadline for getting them mailed to you?

I have plenty yarn and don't mind paying shipping to you.

I am not sure that would work out well. Just shipping that yarn to people would cost you a LOT. And then who would pay for shipping those scarfs to Atlanta?. All that money to be waist just for all those shipping's... There are many homeless people in every State & every city where each of us are living. So every donation can be just "drop off".  I do strongly believe in donations without wasting money not making shipping business's rich in that process. Because we can help more people & animals with that money. Yes, there are some instances that shipping is a "must" like those " Christmas Mini Stockings" for our army guys overseas. I assume there are other cases similar to that. 

And you just mentioned that you are a student and you do not have much money.

I too wouldn't mind sending a few scarfs for the cause. I have a lot of yarn that I've been stock piling for a long time that I could use and would happily pay shipping costs. Can you give us the details that @greyhoundgrandmarequested?

Welcome to Crochetville, I salute you for what you're doing. I'm involved with a charity for homeless women and I can agree with you that is one rewarding way to use your crafting skills.
