Homeless peoples scarfs

Here's the website, with more info:
http://www.stanthonysf.org/?q=donate/knit

If you would like to help, just cast on a scarf, using aran or worsted weight wool or wool-blend yarn (NO cotton). The finished scarf should be 5-6 inches wide, and 58-60 inches long. Use neutral, bright, or classic colored yarn (no white or light shades, please).
The Deadline is December 15, 2010.

Scarves can be dropped off or mailed to:
St. Anthony Foundation
Attn: Knitting Project
150 Golden Gate Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94102
Email: knitting@stanthonysf.org
That's such an AMAZING idea! I would love to help, but is Missouri too far away? I don't know how much it would cost to send it there. Any tips?
Good job!
