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

Your words made me think of the "Knit Red KAL" and the "Wear Red on February 4th" (or 3rd, or 6th, there are other dates). Maybe we should also wear red scarves in support of these too?


I'd love to get one done but unfortunately I live in western Canada and time won't permit me to get it there by first of Feb. I'm going to make some anyway and have them ready to mail when the project comes around again.


I'm glad to hear I have a bit of time to mail them. I mailed mine Priority Mail on Monday from California, so hopefully they got there okay today! Thanks for the encouragement!
