Does anyone know what is going on with the guideposts knitting site? I have a box of sweaters to ship out. There web site has been down for more than 2 weeks now. Is this charity still in operation?

I just got an letter from them a few days ago. They reached their goal of 500,000 sweaters so they have now turned the program over to World Vision (one of their partners). They believe they will have the resources and ability to reach more children than Guideposts alone did. the new address for sweaters is -

Knit for Kids
C/O World Vision
210 Overlook Drive
Sewickley, PA 15143

The letter doesn't say anything about the website, but I assume once they get their ducks in a row they'll open it or a new one again.

Nixie,

World Vision is a wondeful organization, and if you give them a dollar, ninety cents will go to the specified charity.

My friend has worked with them in remote areas of South America, where mountainous tribes need medical help and supplies.

I'm sure your lovingly made sweaters will go to the kids who need them.

This is a good guide for charities.
