Here's one a friend of mine just told me about the Dulaan Project .It is a group knitting for the impoverished in Mongolia.

Another Chemocap Group

One of my favorites http://www.cubsforkids.com/This charity has knitters make outfits for teddy bears to give to kids in homeless shelters. The sweaters are great stash busters!!!

I think anyone who knits should do at least one project for a charity.

Thank you so much for the list. I've only been knitting for about a year, but have wanted to do "something" with my new found hobby. This list has been very helpful. I just can't decide which charity to knit for!
