Afghans for Afghans

Have you ever wanted to create something for a wonderful cause? Well, now here is your chance. I found this great website for the wonderful people of Afghanistan. Here is an excerpt from the website:

afghans for Afghans is a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that sends hand-knit and crocheted blankets and sweaters, vests, hats, mittens, and socks to the beleaguered people of Afghanistan.

This grassroots effort is inspired by Red Cross volunteers who made afghans, socks, slippers, and other items for soldiers and refugees during World Wars I and II and other times of crisis and need. Read about the Red Cross knitting tradition.
