The Giving Time of Year.

It’s been awhile since I talked about Warm The World. I’m still knitting as much as I can for them and earlier this month, I attended their monthly meeting.

Felicia and I set out on a Saturday morning to meet Nan (the founder and passion behind Warm The World) and some other volunteers. I’ve met Nan before, but this was the first time I’ve seen her set up and met other volunteers in person.

To say the least, I was impressed all over again.

Warm The World is an entirely volunteer operation. There are no paid staff members. Not one.

All yarn, needles, hooks, and patterns are donated.

Anything that you can donate will be greatly appreciated. Anything. You may not think that one pair of needles or a partial skein of yarn is worth donating, but think about if just a few people donated their leftovers.

Literally every little bit of yarn, every needle, every hook, every pattern and every dollar that is donated will be put to use helping others.

Warm The World is the real deal: a charity that does what it says it does. There’s no catch and no ‘funny business’. There’s just Nan and her team of volunteers.

If you’re going to donate to charity this year, please consider Warm The World. Take time to click around their website and learn about this wonderful organization. Their newsletters can be found here.

Felicia also blogged about our visit to Warm The World (she even took pictures!) and you can find those posts here and here.

For the past few weeks, it seems that every news story I see/read and every blog post I come across is talking about what presents a person is giving/receiving. That’s all fine and good, but please remember that there are people in this world who can’t afford something as simple as a warm winter scarf.

Let’s help Nan warm the world: one scarf, one hat and one blanket at a time.
