crochet for California

The California Fires - How Your Crochet Can Help
As we all know, southern California--specifically the San Diego area--recently suffered the most devastating wildfires in the state's history, with many homes and other properties completely lost and thousands of people displaced. Thankfully, there are numerous wonderful organizations reaching out to help those who have suffered such loss.
But perhaps we as individuals - crocheters, specifically - can reach out with the gift of our stitching talents to bring a cheerful message of love and compassion to the victims of this horrendous tragedy. You can help make the upcoming holiday season a bit brighter for those who lost so much in these fires.
Kathy Wesley, longtime associate and technical editor for DRG's knitting and crochet programs, sent me the following information about a wonderful project that her church group is sponsoring to help the fire victims. Kathy lives in the San Diego area and was indeed lucky that her home managed to escape being destroyed. Kathy and others in her church are reaching out to brighten the lives of those who weren't as fortunate:
Says, Kathy, "We are planning a Community Christmas Boutique where the over 400 families in our community that have lost homes can come and select items to decorate for the holidays. In order to make this a special place with a variety of one-of-a-kind items, the help of your Talking Crochet readers would be appreciated. Specific suggestions would be stockings, thread crochet, angel tree toppers, and ornaments.
"I need to have the items by Nov. 30th to allow us time to set-up. We would like these to be new items. Anyone interested can contact me at [email protected] for more information and where to send the items. Thanks for helping to make this a really special Christmas for these families!"
Don't stay were you are tolerated, go where you are celebrated!
