Helping Superstorm Sandy Victims

If you have time to crochet a quick scarf, hat or blanket to aid Sandy victims, here are some organizations that are collecting fiberwear for the victims of Superstorm Sandy.  This is a great way to use up some of your yarn stash that's been sitting around for a while.  I'll update this page as I find more organizations.

My Merry Messy Life  

My Merry Messy Life has organized a blog, shop, and fan hop where other bloggers commit to make winter hats and scarves for those in the New Jersey and New York City areas and mail them to the address below.
