Donating items to those less fortunate
During the holiday season there are many members who enjoy crocheting and donating items to those less fortunate. If you do not have a local charity, you might consider donating clothing, blankets and toys to the Cozy Cuddles for Kids charity. This organization helps needy children from newborns to adult-sized teens.
Grant A Wish will distribute donations to the children. The mission of this Chicago-based group is to uplift a child's consciousness by providing something he or she needs or wants.
You can send you donations to Cozy Cuddles for Kids, Attn. K. Quinn, 1939 Waukegan Rd., Suite LL2, Glenview, IL 60025. Donations outside of Illinois may be sent to K. Quinn/Cozy Cuddles, c/o Grant A Wish, 400 N. Wells, Suite 412, Chicago, IL 60610.
For more information, e-mail SHFK200@aol.com or phone (847) 998-9950.

COZY CUDDLES & THE MITTEN TREE PROJECT 2003 !
[SCHOOL SUPPLY CAMPAIGN BELOW]
Someone once said warm hands equal warm hearts. It is amazing that there are children right here in the United States of America who don’t have warm hands on their way to school or allowing them to play outside. Your help will make the difference in t he life of a child-right here in our “backyard” not worlds away! We can distribute just about anything you can create to needy children! If you have questions feel free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 847-998-9950 or fax at 847-998-9945. [email is the fastest, least expensive way!]

OTHER DONATIONS ACCEPTED:
Jackets, coats, dolls, trucks, books, etc. The only requirement is all items must be new & unwrapped.
