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

Button stolen, hosted at my site and up&running. Pimpage will start in earnest once I've gotten some red yarn.





Me 3!


I have a button over here*, if anyone wants it. I'm promoting the project too, as much as I can. I'll post a link to the blog now.



Count me in! As soon as I can figure out how to add buttons to TypePad, that is! This is one of the most worthy projects I have seen in awhile. Everybody LOVES babies, but they tend to forget about the teens.

I'm in! Lovely idea.


I'm a little overwhelmed, but I'm betting I can find it in my heart (and my stash) to make a scarf. I only promise one, and that way if I actually make more I can feel all noble.

Is any material ok or should it be wool?


I'm in! Time to rummage through the stash and see what I've got, otherwise it's of to the LYS for some yarn shopping fun!


I finally got my button up. :D

Thanks for posting them here.
