Good plan, Susan!

Here's the address:
Orphan Foundation of America
The Red Scarf Project
21351 Gentry Drive
Sterling, VA 20166

If you want, you can include a note to the orphan, and/or a gift card, when mailing your completed scarf. (Last time I sent one, I included a $5 Starbucks card, and wrote washing instructions for the scarf on a little note with the scarf.)

Here are the details for including other things:
Include a personal note of encouragement to keep a student's spirits up during the cold months. Some of our fosters say that hand-written notes mean as much as the care package items themselves.
Please secure your note with ribbon or string to the scarf, and you may include your first name, city and state. You can also mention any washing instructions.
A gift card from any national chain store is also welcome Barnes and Noble, Borders, Target, Wal-mart, Starbucks or any fast food chain. OFA students LOVE gift cards!
