Red Scarf Project Blog

What is the Red Scarf Project?

  • The Red Scarf Project, a project of the Orphan Foundation of America, or, collects scarves to send in Valentine's Day care packages to college students who have aged out of foster care. These brave young people are going it on their own and trying to improve their lives and the community by attending college. The care packages are welcome tokens of encouragement to young people who otherwise receive little to no mail. Your scarf should be soft (any material), unisex design, and approximately 60 inches long by 5 to 8 inches wide. Machine washable is a plus, but it is not absolutely necessary. Mail it to: Orphan Foundation of America The Red Scarf Project 21351 Gentry Drive Sterling, VA 20166 ..but not until September 1, 2009-December, 2009. Please read all the info in this blog. Most of your questions will be answered here. Also, please check out the Red Scarf Ravelry group. If you still have questions that remain unanswered, please email me at

I am looking forward to participating next year as well. I found your site a bit too late to contribute this year but I love the whole idea! When do you start up again for 2008?

 Ann Gaspari

I'm so excited because you posted my pictures! I had so much fun doing this. I used up a bunch of stash yarn, too. I hope the Orphan Foundation wants to do this again next year, because I'll get my knitting group to join me. Thanks so much, Norma.

How do I get the photos I have of the scarves I sent into the gallery??
