Handmade Especially For You - Crafty Scarves

The initiative running this action is called “Handmade Especially For You” and is a US based organization. The service they provide is making and distributing “comfort” scarves to abused women.  They tie each scarf with a ribbon and provide a note signed by the giver.  Often this is the first gift ever received by the recipient, which is what makes this service such a great one.
To give an idea of the difference they make and the help they need,  in 2011, they made and delivered 15,000 scarves to all of the shelters for abused women in Los Angeles County.  All a person needs to do is to knit or crochet a scarf for them. Patterns are provided on the website and once made, can be mailed off to a U.S. postal address
