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

Norma. If you don't stop making me cry....I don't know what I'll do, but something.

I love Megan.

Vikkie aka Victoria

My word that is an absolutely fabulous achievement! I am proud of her and I don't even know her!


What an inspiration!! This girl is a fine example of what we can all achieve if we set our mind and heart on a goal!! I am humbled!


What a wonderful story. That's a girl with terrific leadership potential and a terrific heart.


This warms my heart. Hurray for you, Megan!


You did absolutely fantastic and you helped so many people with this! I am hoping to get Crafting Angels involved in this better this year. Only a couple of us made scarves this last time. We made 5, so we need a larger goal next year!

You are an inspiration!


This is so wonderful. It's great to see a teenager who is really concerned and active about what's going on in the world today. You don't see a lot of that.

Hi Megan ! This is so thoughtful of you. I will tell our local Guides and Leaders what you have been doing. We are a small country District near Hamilton, New Zealand.
