You Can Start Your Own Love Scarf Project!

The original Love Scarf Project was started for the patients at City of Hope in Southern California as a tribute to Robbie Seidman. People from around the country have worked to make it a huge success! Next year, we would love to see the Project taken to a whole new level. Instead of sending a scarf across the country, think about starting a Love Scarf Project in your own neck of the woods! There are cancer patients everywhere who would benefit from the love and warmth a Love Scarf could give them. So go ahead! You can do it!

And here's how.

The Final Count and Delivery

As you can see by the numbers already posted in the sidebar, we ended up 89 scarves and 27 caps and one pair of slippers!. This is what a pile of all those things looks like:Isn't it amazing! Looking at that pile in my home and realizing all of the time and love that pile represented was completely overwhelming.

When I dropped off all of the scarves and caps on Christmas Eve, the women who accepted them at City of Hope were just as overwhelmed. They couldn't believe how beautiful everything was.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the Love Scarf Project 2006. I know the love and cheer your handmade items brought to the men and women at City of Hope over the holidays was a priceless gift,

And remember, it's never too early to start your needles and hooks for the Love Scarf Project 2007!
