Last Minute Challenge!!! Dulaan Project
 
Anybody want to knit something
QUICKLY for charity?
I CHALLENGE you to join me in making one or two items, and mail it to be received before the July 1 deadline!!!

The Dulaan Project needs WARM knitted clothing for Mongolia's impoverished people. In the wintertime, it gets to 40 degrees BELOW zero in that area.

The deadline for them to receive your knitted item is JULY 1ST!!!!

That gives you a couple weeks to make something.

Their most urgent need right now is for ADULT sized clothing.
(Hats, Sweaters, Mittens, Scarves, Gloves, Socks, Neck Gaiters.)

Here is the address to mail your items:

The Dulaan Project
F.I.R.E.
107 N. San Francisco St., Studio 4
Flagstaff, AZ 86001

Follow the guidelines for mailing on this PDA document.

This would be a great way to make use of some hand-knitted items that don't fit properly. Give it to those that NEED it!

I plan on sending a sweater I made that was too small for me. :thumbsup: I'm also sending the alpaca neck-warmer I made. And I'm knitting a couple hats and a scarf to send as well.
