2014 Special Olympics Scarf Project

** Complete information on the information can be found on this page.  **

Update as of 5 November 2013:

SO Oklahoma has decided to withdraw from participation in the 2014 Scarf Project.

I suppose with the deadline looming at 30 December 2013, they didn’t think that the goal would be met.  Or it could be some confusion again about Red Heart concluding the project with Special Olympics last year.  In any case, that’s 1,800 less scarves to make for the 2014 Scarf Project.

If you have already mailed Oklahoma scarves to the address provided, those scarves will be sent on to four other states that have the same colour combination of Red and Black.  These states are Alaska, Delaware, Kansas, Texas.

If you have completed scarves and ready for mailing, please do send it on to one (or all) of the four states.

It is a bit of a disappointment that one of the state programs would pull out now.  Since our group started this last year, my biggest concern at first was that we wouldn’t get enough states to participate, and then when 19 states participated last year, I knew that we wouldn’t meet all their requirements, but we did the best we could.  This year, we had less states participating – and probably because we didn’t meet their goals last year! 😦   But then I thought that was good in a way, because then there’d be more of a possibility that we would meet their goals.

In any case, we’ll just keep on supporting the Scarf Project for as long as any of the state programs wants to continue with it.

As usual, many thanks for you generous crafters out there who donate much of their time and support for the cause.

And please do help in spreading the word about the Scarf Project.  It’s a good cause.
