I've been receiving many inquiries about Red Scarf 2009, asking if "I" will be accepting scarves again soon, and when will I be accepting scarves, and what do I do with all the excess scarves. Let me explain again: I don't receive any scarves and I don't make any decisions with regard to the Red Scarf Project. I don't even work for the Orphan Foundation. I'm just a cheerleader with a blog; that's all I is.
I don't have any more information than you have, but here is what I found posted at the Orphan Foundation Website on the Red Scarf Project page. PLEASE REMEMBER, the goal is not to inundate them with so many scarves they cannot handle them all! With so much enthusiasm for the project, it is difficult to strike the balance between "enough" and WAY TOO MANY. So, my advice is to try to curb your enthusiasm! And please consider sending in a donation to the Red Scarf Fund. :)
Dates for the next Red Scarf initiative are projected to fall between September 1 through October 15, 2008. Scarves should be sent to:
Orphan Foundation of America
The Red Scarf Project
21351 Gentry Drive
Sterling, VA 20166
As we have limited means for storage, please send your scarves only during this time period.
How many scarves can I make and send in?
Please limit donations to no more than five scarves from any one person or organization. Thank you!
