Again, hats, mittens, and socks, for ages 5 through adult. All wool or other animal fiber (or at least 75%), as always. It's not a snob issue -- it's just plain warmer. People receiving our gifts are highly likely to have, at most, one other pair of socks, for instance.
Right now we're asking for everything to be there by the end of November -- it's kind of a blitz, but the legendary basement is undergoing repairs and renovations during the month of December. If things are there by November 30, they can be boxed up and ready to go early in January if we get lucky.
Here's word from Ann:
"We have two possible opportunities to get more of our wool gifts on
air flights to Afghanistan that are coordinated with two different
reputable humanitarian organizations with experience in Afghanistan.
We're not sure yet of air schedules and corresponding campaign due
dates. Recipients may be school children, street kids, or families in
refugee camps, or all of these populations.
However, we are certain that either of these flights and agencies are
able to responsibly transport and distribute wool socks, mittens, and
hats for ages 5 through adults.
We know the fine work of both these organizations, dedicated to
serving the people of Afghanistan, no matter how the situation evolves.
Therefore, let's continue with the same guidelines for our last
completed campaign for Aschiana. Will you join us?
