Hats and Mittens/Scarves for Orphanage - Craft or Buy
« on: November 13, 2010, 08:19:44 PM »
Want to knit or crochet or sew some warm hats and scarves for children? Or donate a hat and mittens?  Or donate money so I can buy a set in your name?

Rancho 3M is an orphanage in Mexico just outside of Juarez.  Juarez is the deadliest city in Mexico with drug cartel violence.  Some of these children are true orphans who witnessed one or both parents killed brutally.  Others' parents are drug addicts, prostitutes or in prison.   Friends of mine live and work in the orphanage and I have made arrangements for Ehellions to knit or crochet or sew either a hat and scarf or hat and mittens set for each child.   I'm told it gets very cold in the winter down there so the gift of warm hats and scarf/mittens was received with a lot of enthusiasm.

If you are interested, check out the sub-folder Rancho 3 M for more details.

Closing date for this project is December 15, 2010.
