Craftivism: Do you craft for charity?

Hi there, I love crafting for other people. Seeing the smiles on the faces of my friends and family when they open their handmade gifts at Christmas makes all the effort worthwhile. Of course, people I don't know might appreciate a handmade gift even more. There are many options if you're interested in crafting for charity. Here's a small selection: Once you've decided to help, the next step is deciding what to make. In Canada it's fair to say that warm woollens are a good bet. You might find something in this collection of patterns for warm winter apparel; or maybe you'd like to stick with that Canadian classic: the toque. A knitted afghan can't go wrong; if that seems like too much for one person, why not get a couple friends involved and make this community afghan together? Do you craft for charity? I'd love it if you'd leave a link to your organization in the comments of this post. p.s. Don't forget to enter this week's contest for a chance to win a copy of Green Crafts for Children: 35 step-by-step projects using natural, recycled, and found materials by Emma Hardy.
