The Warmies Project

1/8/17 Thank you, Orlando Distaff Day!  The fiber artist community again supplied more than 100 donations, which were taken to the Coalition for the Homeless last night to help with the sudden cold snap, along with bags of donated food.  We’re making another delivery today.

Help us warm up cold folks!

We accept hand-made items to distribute to people in need in our community when it gets cold.  Each item should come with a hand-written note from the donor to the person who will receive your gift – warming their heart as well!

We distribute to homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, hospices, youth programs, children’s hospitals, and more.

When including your personal note from the artist to the recipient, please use positive, encouraging, inspirational messages that respect the diverse worldviews of all people.  No political, religious, or similarly non-inclusive messages will be distributed.
