Philly Care Caps is another charity knitting and crocheting site. We are looking for crafters from all over the country (and Canada, too, if you don't mind shipping it to PA).

We're looking for people to make and donate chemo caps for children. The people range from newborns to mid-twenties, so there's a wide range of possibilities!

Showing and giving
If any of you members of clubs, here's a thought from our Horticultural Society's schedule. Each Spring show there's a craft section as well as the expected flowers, preserves etc., and we have a competition to knit for the local Prem Baby unit. We have one pattern - last year it was a blanket, this year a wee jacket. The Society provide the pattern and wool, the completed garments are judged and then all of them are sent of to snuggle the babes.

The Peyton Heart Project
My name is David James, and I represent #Peytonheartproject. We distribute small knit or crocheted hearts to people with an affirmation attached. The hearts are either placed in public for people to find, or handed out to them. The project is named after my always 13 year old son Peyton James who took his life in October of 2014 after years of bullying and harassment at school because he was perceived as different. The purpose is to let people know that there is some on out there that cares about them. The original idea was to hand a heart to every incoming freshman at a local high school to help ease the transition, and to remind them that there are people out there that care. However, the idea has taken off, and we are in need of people to make the hearts. If anybody out there wants to help, please let us know. Thank you.
