Well, I love this idea that our Jorie has come up with! And I have been on the hunt for charities to list that aren't already included in the interests in the user-info.

Here is the list:

Ronald McDonald House
Hope for the HUngry (I have done volunteer work for them locally and seen the wonderful things they do to help people in need here in the US)

United Way

Volunteers of America

Project Night Night http://www.projectnightnight.org

And I found a whole slew of Crafty-type charities in this article http://www.craftbits.com/viewArticle.do?articleID=20. I have not gone through and checked all of the links, though.

Afghans for Angels http://www.angelfire.com/ia2/AforApage2/index.html (this one is for giving blankets to parents who have lost a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. I had a nephew that was stillborn so this one jumped out at me. How much it might have helped my sister0in-law to have had something tangible to hold onto after Logan was gone. I only wish that I could sew or knit. I would be making them for this charity all year long)

Thanks Cheri!

Also, I need to pimp the Victory Junction Gang Camp again...

http://www.victoryjunction.org

It's a camp for critically ill children and they need afghans, quilts, and teddy bears. See the website for more info.
