What is the Red Scarf Project?


  • The Red Scarf Project, a project of the Orphan Foundation of America, or Orphan.org, 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.knits@gmail.com

Thank you so much for sharing with us, The Norma. It's a wonderful reminder about why we do what we do, and how I need to start collecting red yarn.

I can't wait to see more pix! I'm sad, though, because I didn't include my contact info. I thought about it but then worried the recipients might feel pressured into contacting me, etc. I guess I worry too much! In the end, I just hope whoever gets them, enjoys them.

Debbie

Thanks for sharing. I still think about whoever it was that got my red scarf an hope they are doing well!
