  1. Hi!
    I recently found this blog through a friend.

    We recently started a group for to collect handmade hats for Gazan children. So far, we have made and collected over 100 hats from all over the globe, and they are being hand-delivered for us by a friend who is attending the March on Gaza at the end of this month.
    We are already collecting and making (knit, crochet, sewn) hats for our next delivery. Our effort is on-going and we hope to make and collect 2010 hats in 2010.
    We would love to have our blog featured on yours, or added to the blogroll. We need to use every means necessary to get the word out and get people involved in our cause.

    Please do visit our blog:
