200 hats to the homeless shelter!

I heard you are searching for stories of people's crafting for charity. I have done quite a lot since I have found the yahoo group "all crafts for charity." I have crocheted most of it of what I gave.

I have given about 200+ hats to the local homeless shelter. I have sent about 20 hats to "Afghans for Afghans". And I have sent about 50+ hats to the "Ships Project".

I am still crocheting for charity, and have now started sewing, and am making coolties to send for Ship Support.

I'm still crafting for charity, but have just found out I'm going to be an aunt for the first time in early December!!!

So, I am going to be crafting a lot for my future niece/ nephew.
