Whatcha doin?

I've been working on several projects lately, one of which is Red Scarves for Women's Heart Scarves Program. February is Women's Heart Awareness Month. The National Coalition for women with heart disease, Women Heart is the nation's only patient advocacy organization serving 41 million American Women living with or at risk for heart diseae-the leading cause of death in women. Women Heart is solely devoted to advancing women's heart health through advocacy, community education, and the nation's only patient support network for women living with heart disease. Women heart is both a coalition and a community of thousands of members nationwide, including women heart patients and their families, physicians, and health advocates, all committed to helping women live longer healthier lives. Created in 2005 by two women heart disease survivors, the Heart Scarves program delivers handmade, red scarves to members of the WomenHeart Support Networks, and to women undergoing cardiac procedures. If you're interested in kntting or crocheting a red scarf for the WomenHeart Scarves Program here's the address:

Women Heart Scarve Program
C/O Big Show Fulfillment
1525 Gin Road
Gold Hill, NC  28071      If you go to Red Heart Yarns they have free scarf patterns. So now I've given you all this information it's up to you as to whether or not you do anything. I hope you will.

I'll check out the "Women's Heart Scarves Program", Barbara. My dear mother succumbed to heart failure, and I'm happy to help any "heart friendly" causes. Thanks for pointing this out.
