Last year we started something I want to turn into a tradition -- abandoning scarves for those who need them here in Baltimore! Please join in for the 2nd Annual Baltimore Scarf Abandonment!
Start on : January 13, 2018 2:00 PM Saturday
End on : January 13, 2018 3:00 PM Saturday
Just like last year, if you're not local, you can still absolutely participate in this project. You just need to mail your donations to me by the end of 2017.
PO Box 354
Linthicum Heights, MD 21090
(You can also request my home address so we don't overwhelm the poor employees at my post office. Just DM/e-mail me.)
The scarves can be handmade or store-bought. You can knit, crochet, purchase, or donate as many scarves as your heart desires! All scarves are accepted, but wool is ideal just because it can stay warm when wet. :)
Like last year, I want to add a tag to each scarf that has a positive message on it. Something like "You are loved", "You are very beautiful", etc. If you can make these yourself and attach it with a safety pin, that would be ideal! Otherwise I'll be making them all myself.
Yes, you can also donate hats and gloves to keep people warm! We're focusing on scarves, but I'm absolutely not turning away donations. If you do send gloves, please consider connecting them with a string and safety pins so they are easier to hang on the posts/don't get mismatched.
We'll be abandoning these scarves on January 13th at the park on the corner of President and Fayette Street where many homeless people sleep. It's surrounded by a fence, which is a great opportunity for us to tie a bunch of scarves to the posts for people to take! (Use the Phoenix Shot Tower as a landmark to get to the park! It's right across the street!)
If you're local, feel free to save your scarves till the day of the installation. You can also
