I got a link to Bernat Cares
today in my inbox. I was happy to see it. I knit caps, mittens, scarves, and afghans for charity organizations in my area.
I know that I was guilty of thinking that in disasters like earthquakes, the only worries were food, water and shelter. I didn't think beyond losing everything you own but the clothes on your back in something. My local charities will still benefit from my knitting attempts, however, I will now have a little box put aside for items needed by the charities that Bernat is trying to help. It's a small way to help and it makes me feel good.
