CHARITY PROJECT

I belong to Ravelry, and The True Beauty Scarf Project group. We are putting together scarves for auction to benefit the Support Network for Battered Women and looking for yarn donations. I'm collecting multi color sock yarn to weave into a scarf. I will accept any left overs you have of whatever material ( I plan to wear gloves to weave this one LOL.)

Here is our header for the group page which explains what the group is all about:

Scarfs will be put together from remnants of yarn leftover from previous projects that were special to the people who contributed, and the finished scarves will be sold in an auction to benefit the Support Network for Battered Women.
Read Carefully!:
Pieces of yarn should be between 10-25 yds.
You must include a card explaining why that yarn is significant to you
Not all pieces will go to the same place (different people will be putting together different scarves!)
ALL finished scarves will be SOLD auction style
Winners of the auctions will receive the finished scarf along with its rightful cards

If you want to contribute, you must include a card with this:
My name is _______________.
This yarn is from (yarn brand), it was leftover from (project name) which was created for (person who received it) I consider this project to be special because (why was it special). I hope my contribution will help a truly remarkable and beautiful person.
Sincerely, _______________

Please email me if your interested in donating some yarn and I will give you my snail mail addy to send it to me.
