We are a group of students from Arcadia University, located in Glenside, PA...right outside Philly! There are about 25 of us so far, and we're super excited to start doing some awesome projects!!
Some ideas we have so far include:
-Crochet therapy program with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)- pairing up one on one with the kids, teaching crochet, spending time with them, talking, playing games. Each activity lasts about 3 hours, and we are trying to go every 2 months. :)
-Crochet a thon at the Glenside Street fair Sept 2011- How many chain stitches H4H members can do in a minute, and free bracelet making! Members of the Glenside community stopped by our table at the fair to learn crochet and to enter our "guess the stitches" contest. Congratulations to our winners, Emily , 6 (1st place), and Matt, 9 [2nd place]. Over 100 people visited our table, we made over 75 bracelets, and $25 was donated to CHOP, which H4H will match, for a total donation of $50. :) Way to go, everyone! Super excited for next year's street fair! :D
