Hand-knit wool sweaters for girls in Afghanistan

About

Americans are making ... afghans for Afghans! Please join us. Knit or crochet WOOL mittens, socks, or hat -- for Afghan women, men, and children. This grassroots effort is inspired by those Red Cross volunteers who knit socks and sweaters for soldiers and refugees during World Wars I and II and at other times of crisis and need. Your gift will bring comfort and warmth to Afghan families who continue to suffer from oppression, war, hunger, poverty, and sickness. Your lovingly garments will send a message of friendship and respect to our fellow humans on the other side of the globe. Visit http://www.afghansforAfghans.org/blanket.html for details on getting started and shipping address. We look forward to your participation.
