I was snooping in a crochet group and someone had posted this article. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2009/03/grand_rapids_man_crochets_hats.html Now it's an older article but it is heartwarming enough I'd have to share it further. I would love to know what's become of this man and what he's done since this article has been published. Perhaps he's gotten the ball rolling and others now do this and share their talents. Have you donated any of your works to the less fortunate in your community?

That is so cool. My daughter belongs to a crochet group that donates hats to soldiers....she also donates baby blankets to hospitals to wrapped in infants that have passed.....and she does prayer shawls....I have in the past donated to the less.....at Christmas I crocheted mittens and hats and gave them to the Salvation Army....now I donate sets of my cards to benefits that raise money to help people pay for their medical expenses! It gives you such a warm feeling....to know that you are helping someone else!

That is indeed touching. Stories like this really renew your faith in humanity amidst all the shooting news all over. We do donate some old stuff in our local goodwill. And sometimes we buy toys for kids for the Children's White Cross in Manila. It does make you feel good to do good.

What a very selfless man to help out those who need help. I think it is great that he wants to help those who are less fortunate and gives them something from the heart. I know that yarn is not always cheap, but he has found something that he loves to do and loves knowing that he is helping someone else keep warm. I would love to be able to learn how to knit or crochet so I can help those in the military. Randy is a veteran and I love to help those brave men and women who fight for our freedom.
