The Yarnarian Adds Important Info To Her Blog:

Do you want to do some important charity knitting? Here are two groups that do afghans, one for the Pine Ridge Reservation here in the US, and one for all those thousands and thousands of orphaned children in South Africa.

The first one is for the African kids, who have been orphaned by the AIDS virus that's sweeping South Africa. There have been lots of reports on the effect of AIDS on children on the news on PBS, and I just found this group on Ravelry. Here's the important info on the web, followed by the Ravelry group:

And here is the information for the Pine Ridge Reservation Group:

Caffeine Girl - When I was watching the PBS news, I kept thinking of what I could do, and then today I found the Ravelry group. And Pine Ridge is such a poor area, and needs our help desperately. So, I'm very pleased to get involved.

Thank you so much for putting this information. I wrote a magazine article a few years about Pine Ridge, and it is in the poorest county in the US! I'm definitely going to get involved.
