So excited … I got the first request for my new venture, NYC Hats for Hope Initiative.
A Rescue Mission based in Binghamton, NY, is in need of hats and scarves for homeless men referred to their residence. There’s an ongoing need for the items, so I’ve started us off on a conservative number of 200 (100 hats, 100 scarves). That should be manageable, since we’re just starting and with few members at this stage, I don’t want us – ok, me! – to be overwhelmed with packages coming in.
I may be a little optimistic; I don’t see much activity on the blog or on the Ravelry website. But I have no doubt that the crafters out there will pull through, even if it is for one or two items only.
