Tips for Knit and Crochet Charity Donations

What do charities want? What are the guidelines for donated items? Since I’ve served in that capacity, I thought I’d share a few tips and ideas to consider when preparing your gifts. Not sure where to send your much needed items? I describe 3 great options in the video and a bunch more listed below. NOTE: I’m adding links all the time so check back from time to time!
