Welcome to Crochetville’s Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month 2014. We hope you’ll visit with us often this month, support our chosen charity, and visit the websites of the designers who are part of our blog tour.
Focus Charity: Halos of Hope
Crochetville has received a lot of support from the crochet community over the years. We believe strongly in the importance of giving back. In 2013, Crochetville became a corporate sponsor of a wonderful organization called Halos of Hope.
Halos of Hope is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded by Pam Haschke, herself a survivor of inflammatory breast cancer. Halos of Hope’s mission to provide volunteer-crafted hats to cancer centers across the country.
Donate Some Hats: ON SAFARI
We are encouraging all blog tour participants and visitors to spend some time this month making hats for Halos of Hope.
You may send your hats to Crochetville’s main office, otherwise known as Amy’s home. She will count all the hats and deliver them directly to Pam and Halos of Hope at Stitches South in Atlanta on Friday, April 11.
The Stitches South hat collection drive will focus on animal-themed hats that will be given to Children’s Healthcare in Atlanta.
Here are some links to free animal hat patterns you may want to use:
Make a Monetary Donation
Halos will be providing us with a special link through which you’ll be able to make a donation directly to their organization, and that will also keep track of all donations made through our blog tour.
