I am attempting to raise money for a project that will help others. I am just a beginner at crocheting but I have found that it helps my mental health  to do. I want use my new skill to spread that good feeling to others.48659558_1591638976102578_r.jpeg
My mom used to work at an assisted living home for the elderly. She said that not a lot of people had visitors or even got gifts on holidays. Once people are put in homes like that they tend to be forgotten. What I am trying to do is make 100 scarves by the start of November to be able to give to people in nursing homes. I want them to know they are loved. So many people are forgotten... they are our past, and even though the past has not always been kind to everyone that doesn’t mean they should be left to die alone without love or hope. 

I am asking for money for yarn. A single skeins of yarn ranges from $2.99-$6.99 depending on the brand, thickness, softness, etc. In order to make 100 scarves it is going to cost quite a bit. I am only asking for help for the materials to be able to make the scarves. I know there are more pressing matters in the world right now, but love is love and I want to spread love to those who have been forgotten.48659558_1591639079397366_r.jpeg
