October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
From Handmade Especially for You:
"We understand that the items we make cannot solve or cure the negative impact of domestic violence on the women and children who experience it. We hope our comfort scarves will alleviate some of the terrible pain domestic violence causes. The comfort scarves for the women and the hats we make for the kids are a START. They help the women and children know we care about them. They lift their spirits, raise their self-esteem, and give them hope that someday they may have a life without abuse. Directors at the almost 70 shelters we serve use these hopeful moments to encourage women to begin the education and therapy that will help them live an abuse-free life."
To support the 2017 holiday season, we'll be collecting scarves through November 5, 2017.
(note: while the organization also distributes hats to the shelters, scarves are most in need).
