At Handmade Especially for You, we knit and crochet comfort scarves and donate them to shelters for abused women. Each scarf is like a hug to the woman who receives it. Almost every recipient has never before received a personal gift, much less a handmade gift. The gift is a very welcome surprise to the woman. The shelters give them to the women because they have been brave enough to escape from their abusive environment. Often the scarf helps the woman change her self perception; she feels worthwhile enough to consider changing her life.
In 2012, Handmade distributed 12,000 comfort scarves to all the shelters in Southern CA. In 2013, we want to continue supporting our 60 shelters.
Abuse is ongoing. We donate at least 800 scarves each month. Please participate!
