Charity Feature - The Pink Slipper Project
By: Lion Brand
 
Image courtesy Pink Slipper ProjectHandmade slippers "warm the hearts and toes of women and children living in shelters," says Joyce Lucas. In 2009, she founded the Pink Slipper Project to fulfill a basic need keeping people warm while making shelter residents feel unique and loved. By working closely with the charity organization Enchanted Makeovers, the Pink Slipper Project is able to transform the shelter experience into one of warmth and hope. The organization has donated hundreds of knitted, crocheted, and sewn slippers to shelters across the nation so far, and they are hoping to reach over 1,000 donated pairs by the end of the year.

While the organization is called the Pink Slipper Project, your donation doesn't have to be pink. Use any color that you like to make the slippers as unique as the women and children who will receive them. Slippers should be made of acrylic or wool yarn in worsted or bulky weight, such as Vanna's Choice or Wool-Ease. Any appropriate pattern is acceptable. We recommend our Knit Felted Slip Ons, Crochet Adult Booties (pictured below), or Loom-Knit Chunky Footies. Slippers are needed in children, teen, and adult sizes.

For the rest of the year, the Pink Slipper Project will also be following the Enchanted Makeovers Beauty and Hope Tour. Each month, the tour will be visiting a shelter in a different state to provide slippers, pillowcases, gifts, and a complete redecoration of the shelter. Future sites include Pennsylvania, Illinois, New Jersey, and more.

Please send your donation of materials or completed slippers to the following address:
Joyce Lucas
c/o The Pink Slipper Project
111 Huntington Road
Colonial Heights, VA 23884
