I think I will put some of my energy towards that need this year. I love to knit, sew and crochet. I make a lot of hats and scarves for my shop. This year I will see how many hats I can make for kids who need them. I'll have to figure out what percentage lets me balance out my store's needs with my desire to do good. On average I make about 4 hats a week when I crochet, so I'm thinking of donating 25% or 1 hat a week. 52 hats a year isn't much, but it will hopefully help 52 kids.
Want to join me? Send me an email or drop by the store. I'm not setting up a 501, so don't drop off a bunch of hats and look for a tax receipt. The Salvation Army is good for that sort of thing.
