Wrap Up! Project founder Angelia Reed has a great note here you need to read. Originally posted on Facebook, she would like to share her words, here.
Today, I went through the donated items that will make up the January scarf-bombings.
You all amaze me! This season is our biggest season yet. When I started it, I asked for more donated items than we had ever put out because we were planning on adding a location. I wasn’t sure if we’d be able to do it. After all, we use hand-made items. Hand-made items take time & effort. I worried that I was asking too much of you all. I worried that everyone would burn out & lose interest in this project.
You all rose to the challenge and donated more than 600 items for our first scarf-bombing of this season! Over 600!!! You consistently keep us supplied with items to put out for those in need.
Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️ Many of you aren’t able to make it to the scarf-bombings. I want you to know that there are almost always people walking by as we scarf-bomb. They ask what we’re doing, and why we’re doing it. Some of those people then take items. All of them think it’s a wonderful idea, and think that the items are beautiful. Kids & adults are thrilled to have a hand-made item they can call their own. They are so thankful. I’m telling you this because I want you to know that YOUR contribution to this project is making a difference in people’s lives. YOU are helping people. This project would not be successful without your contribution. Thank you. ❤️❤️❤️👏👏👏
