Kids To Love Foundation

In north Alabama, Lee Marshall founded Kids To Love Foundation which cares for foster children. With the crack cocaine epidemic, more and more children are being placed in foster care. They are taken from their poisoned homes with only the clothes on their backs.
I am handicapped and homebound, but I do a lot of knitting and crocheting to help pay for my medications. With every project there is usually a small amount of yarn left over. I combine similar textures and make caps and scarves to help keep these kids warm in our cold winters. This way many children benefit and I eliminate any yarn waste.
This year I was able to complete 43 caps and 3 scarves to donate while still finishing my other projects. This is a "win win" situation and I hope others with think about doing similar projects.
Lee Marshall, who is also a news anchor for our local NBC station showed the items on her morning show recently as some of the items collected during their Christmas drive for donations.
