How Large is Your Soul?

"Folks will know how large your soul is by the way you treat a dog." Charles F. Duran
You could probably also substitute:
a homeless person
a child
an old person
a horse, cat, gerbil, etc.
a person performing a "menial" task

We are all the same inside; we all deserve to be treated with respect, no matter the circumstances of our lives, or whether we were born human or other animal.

OK, ok. I'll get off my soapbox now. I just liked that quote and wanted to share it!
Please spread the word about Craft Hope; CH spreads seeds of hope one stitch at a time.
They have an Etsy Store raising money for Haiti, but on Jan 20, they suspended donations for two weeks due to an absolutely astounding response. So wait a couple weeks and check the site; they will want more items in the future. That gives you time to make a few!

Project 6 is for foster care teens. They say:
"Much of the nation is currently overwhelmed by this Arctic blast that has covered our landscape. It’s cold out there and what better time to launch a project that allows you to sit on your couch and knit or crochet. For Project 6, we have partnered with The Orphan Foundation of America’s Red Scarf Project. Yup, get your needles and yarn out because it’s time to make a scarf. A red scarf!"
The Star Scarf pattern has been donated and we can all use it; you can download it from their site. They want it to be red and it is due Feb 14. This is rather late notice, I know, but I just learned about Craft Hope today. I'm going to take the Star Scarf pattern to our local knitting group on Thursday; maybe we can make several before Feb 14.
I love blogs, and they are such an excellent way to communicate and to organize good projects. There is no reason for anyone anywhere to think there is nothing they can do to make the world a better, kinder, or more peaceful place!!
