Touching the Lives of Those in Need-Crocheting for Charity

All of us know that crocheting is an enjoyable hobby, but when used to benefit our community, it can be used to create life-changing gifts. Crocheting for charities is a truly unique and rewarding experience, which can give you the opportunity to touch people’s lives in ways you may have never imagined. Whether you have a personal connection to donees, or are simply looking for a way to give back to those in need, charity crocheting is certainly worth getting involved in.

These charities are actively seeking your contributions:

1. Head Huggers

This charity seeks to “provide free knitted, crocheted, fleece/soft fabric hats for those who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, brain surgery, and burn wounds.” If you’re interested in contributing to this wonderful cause, then click here to find out more.

    Thank you for featuring The Pink Slipper Project in your crochet charity. Unfortunately, due to her health, Joyce Lucas, founder of The Pink Slipper Project, is no longer able to be a part of the group. I am taking her place, not as the founder, but handling everything from our Facebook page and everything else. Visit us at http://www.facebook.com/ThePinkSlipperProject. We have a new blog that is currently under construction. http://thepinkslipperproject@blogspot.com. Our members have sent over 550 pair of handmade slippers to shelters around the country from New Hampshire to Alaska.
