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 particpated last year and going to again this year. I have an outdated graphic program so I'm not able to up load buttons that are not "gif" or "bmp". If anyone could make one in that format that would be great. For now, I'll post this site as a link on my blog. Thanks !!


Andi: My little button is already a .gif

I also don't mind saving the current ones as either file format and uploading to my server for you to download. Just let me know.


I've started my first scarf using Knit Picks superwash worsted Swish. I couldn't decide on a color so it's striped in red, brick, and bordeaux. I found a nice easy reversible stitch.
