Are you the most fantastic crocheter on the block? Been hiding that little gem of a talent from your girlfriends? Well now you know what to do with all of those blankets you keep cranking out. Give them to this awesome org that is actually trying to help refugees arriving in the United States to be assimilated into our culture, instead of feeling isolated and alone. Gifts of love from an American stranger thinking about them? Priceless.
