  • In a similar vein Warm Up America! is a charity that is committed to motivating, training and coordinating volunteers to knit and crochet afghans and clothing for people in need. Here are their current needs.

  • Sign up as an animal foster, or volunteer at a local shelter.
  • Participate in a park/stream clean up day! It’s spring time (in the northern hemisphere anyway), and a lot of groups are planning events like this! You don’t even need to do it as part of a group – if you go hiking or to a local park, bring a bag to clean up trash.
  • Volunteer for a soup kitchen or homeless shelter.
  • Donate blood! With the covid scare ongoing, blood drives are being cancelled and supplies are low
  • Write letters to your government representatives to support education and arts funding
