I think it is time to up date your Charities site. This 2014, there is always a need for Baby items , etc.

I would make Christmas stockings, as well as crocheted dolls, for Christmas gifts, and possibly for donations.

I make hats for preemies at the NICU of Grant Memorial Hospital in Columbus, Oh that is what I would use this yarn for. Every new baby deserves a warm cozy hat to wear in the hospital and home and maybe keep in a memory capsule.

I have a great pattern for a baby hat worked in the round that looks like it is cabled. It only takes one evening to make, and I would use this yarn to make hats for homeless children

I would knit hats and blankets for the newborns and for hats for cancer patients. Have friends with breast cancer and a relative with stage 4 brain cancer, which I have knitted hats for them.

I would make blankets and hats for newborns in need. I live in the Pacific Northwest where 73 degrees in August is a heat wave. I'm also an Ambassador for ShelterBox, which delivers shelter, warmth & dignity to people displaced by natural and man-made disasters around the world. Anything I can do to make someone more comfortable is a blessing to me.

Blankets &

I would make stuffed animals for my grandkids

A crafter can never have too many supplies, I could always use more.

we will make items for newborns in need & homeless children for thhe pending wiinter

This is so great, I've been looking for a charity project! I used to make Kaps for Kemo Kids - I think that's how it was spelled...lol, anyway, I lost my info and after I sent in my last batch of 50 hats I have not done anything else! I had a couple of knee replacement surgeries and have not been doing a lot of knitting or crocheting. But I'm ready to get back in that harness!

I would like to make the angel wrap but it doesn't have the size of the material to use or what kind of material to use. It also doesn't say what size it's going to be. It only shows the templets.

mlr, If you print out the template, you can then cut your material to that exact size. Fleece and flannel are preferred, but you can also use any soft material that you would put on a baby! I hope this helps!

Each properly laundered item should separately be placed in a plastic bag...Is that correct?

Hi Carolyn, That is correct. Thanks!

it seems that I cant participate, I am from Puerto Rico

Hi Lizettec, Unfortunately for legal reasons we cannot ship our prize to Puerto Rico. I apologize for any inconvenience. If you would like to still donate to the charity drive, though, we'd love that!

Great charity! Should all items be put in plastic bags? Thanks. Sarah

Hi Sarah, It would be wonderful if you could place all items in plastic bags to keep them as clean as possible! Thanks!
