I think it would be really wonderful if we could all send SOMETHING we make off to some organization or whatever that can do something with it to benefit others in some way.
There is a shop in a little tiny place in Oregon that collects hats that people knit (they hang them all around the ceiling all year round as they receive them). They send them off to somewhere to people that need them. (I'm not sure where)
One of the girls in my stitchery group, Stitchers by the Bay, suggested we send things to The Attic. http://www.atticneedlework.com/
They collect things throughout the year, take pictures and post them to a big mailing. People can all make bids on them (when they say). The proceeds all go to Breast Cancer Awareness. They raised 20k this past December. I am thinking that would be a nice something to do.
