Fun Service Project


My name is Mary and I discovered A4A a while back and I think it's a great organization! I've been knitting off and on since high school, but the last couple of years I have really come back to it. My daughter who is 10 also enjoys knitting, so this winter an idea came to me for a fun service project. I taught my daughter's Girl Scout Troop how to knit and we started making squares for an afghan to send to A4A. My daughter and I were also able to learn about life in Afghanistan and share it with the Girl Scouts. With the help of the girls and several friends, we were able to knit 49 squares which we made into a beautiful afghan. It was so fun when the girls would show me their finished squares! They are so proud of their work : )

I'm so glad to have found this blog and I am amazed at the beautiful things being made for people across the globe : )

Have a great evening,

That is so excellent! Good that you could work in the other information as well. Those girls should be proud, it's a great blanket.

Thank you, Scouts! I love seeing the Girl Scouts involved. I was a leader until just a few years ago when my daughters grew up. Your troop can be so proud of your lovely creativity that will provide warmth for a young person like them far away. (in your honor, I'm going to go have a Samoa with my tea)
