This organization is trying to make the public more aware of this horrific problem but also reach out to those who need some bolstering in their lives, those who feel no one loves them or cares.
There are several ways to take part in this project and I am very happy to be sponsoring one. Charity is my watch word for the year and I have been knitting baby hats to that end, now I an adding making hearts to the list and shipping them off to The PHP so they can be tagged and left in strategic places. You can get the file of inspirational quotes and what needs to be on the tags from PHP and do it yourself or you can send them the finished hearts and they will send them to others to tag and distribute.
So far hearts have not only appeared in almost every state in the USA but also in many many countries. If you check out their page on Facebook you will get much much more information on the project and how you can help that is PeytonHeartProject
I have something in mind that may challenge you a bit to participate. I have not had a giveaway in very long time. I want to give one person one of my fabulous Boo Knit Shawls! Beaded and made with Merino and Silk I will give you a choice of several. Send me photos of the hearts you are making and at the end of the time period, the random generator will select a winner. You can send the finished hearts to me, or directly to PHP or you can get the tagging info from them and distribute them yourself. I just want to see you participating.
Each photo should have 20 hearts in it. They are tiny, made from scraps, knitted, crocheted (I am crocheting mine) or wrapped over cardboard. What ever you enjoy doing, its a great way to use scraps. Last night I made 4 in less then 10 minutes.
The contest will run until October 9th--get me your photos by then, send them to needles54 at optonline dot net. changing the at and the dot accordingly. It will be fun, It will do a whole lot of good, and it will make you feel good.
PLease let me know in the comments if you will help me with this project. Thanks so much
