Today we bagged a bunch of scarves to give to local ERs and crisis centers. Thank you, Tina Herrin, Carol Trott, Mary Davenport, Chrissi Helle, and Sandy Ahearn, for helping with the folding, tagging, and bagging!
We received hand-made scarf donations from Illinois, Virginia, New York, Florida, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, California, North Carolina, Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, Ohio, and Washington!!
Thank you so much for your time, your thoughtfulness, and generosity.
We received this note from Lisa:
“Thanks for the work you do. I hope this scarf will be of comfort to someone. I have found good support and comfort in my post-recovery life and would like to pass it on!”
And this one from Maureen who knits with a group:
“We put peace and healing in every stitch and hope the recipients will know they are supported and not alone.”
The first four pictures are some really beautiful, unique scarves from Sarah Scott, who runs an Etsy store called Destroy My Sweater. Sarah creates a “line of edgy, one-of-a-kind wearables, made (mostly) of recycled thrift store sweaters”
Thank you, Sarah!!

Today, on the planet, a billion women – one of every three women on the planet – will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION mothers, daughters, sisters, partners, and friends violated. V-Day REFUSES to stand by as more than a billion women experience violence.
On February 14th, 2013, V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, we are inviting one billion women and those who love them to walk out, DANCE, RISE UP, AND DEMAND an end to this violence. One Billion Rising is a promise that we will rise up with women and men worldwide to say, “Enough! The violence ends now.”
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN START A RISING – Stage a rising in your community, office, college, or school. Organize a flash mob at a landmark building/site, in the streets or in a nearby mall. Have a dance party, produce a theatrical event, march in your streets, protest, strike, dance and above all RISE!
