Some of you may remember that we have worked with a wonderful foundation known as Warm Up America before, with our readers donating so many knit and crochet afghans that we ran out room to store them before sending them along. After the great success of that charity drive, we had many people reach out and ask when we were going to do it again. I have good news for you!
While we at Prime Publishing aren’t hosting this drive, our dear friend Brittany of B.Hooked Crochet is hosting what she has dubbed the “Crochet Challenge for Warm Up America Foundation” and we can’t be more thrilled to help her with this noble event. We know firsthand all the wonderful work that Warm Up America does across the country, and we know you’ll love to help them once again.
We asked Brittany what a “Crochet Challenge” was and what our readers could do to participate.
Well, it’s quite simple really. A crochet challenge is an organized “contest” with a specific project to be completed in a set amount of time. Once the allowed time has expired, a winner is picked at random to win a really awesome prize. Of course I had to add my own little twist for our first challenge; the afghans we complete will be donated to Warm Up America! Foundation. Pretty neat, huh?
