You've got to love a charity that has a simple mission. In this case, a group of crocheters inspired by Red Cross volunteers who made items for soldiers and refugees during World Wars I and II are making afghans for Afghans. They have set up a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that sends hand-knit and crocheted blankets and sweaters, vests, hats, mittens, and socks to the beleaguered people of Afghanistan. You can see some of the beautiful items they've already made and donated on their website at http://www.afghansforafghans.org/index.html.
