I already posted this on the Etsy forums, and I want to here as well:
I wanted to spread the word - the wonderful knitting/crocheting charity, Afghans for Afghans, is currently running a high-priority campaign for kids' wool clothing and blankets to send to needy children in Afghanistan in time for the winter. The due date for these items is Oct. 29; it's really soon, but even if you could whip up a hat or a pair of mittens to send them by then, I'm sure it'll be appreciated. There is also a campaign for baby blankets going on at the moment. So let's all try to help these kids in any way we can!
