Here is a unique opportunity to do something worthwhile and share warmth this winter!

A couple years ago our daughter Ann "Sparky" Riddle received an award from this wonderful organization Project Love for her unselfish involvement in the electoral process. Our family learned from first-hand experience Project Love is a truly worthwhile, character-building education and training organization that encourages acceptance of others and conducts seminars aimed at the prevention of bullying and intimidation that is so sadly prevalent today especially in public school settings. Recently our girl Sparky came up with the idea of weaving scarfs that could generate donations and provide a tangible product which would have real benefits.

I cannot think of a better bargain than the "SparkScarfs" you see in the picture below this post, you make a 100% contribution to improving the lives of teens and you end up with a beautiful 52" in length scarf for yourself or a loved one. The exceedingly generous option of donating one or more SparkScarfs to The City Mission of Cleveland is also available. Each of these "SparkScarfs" takes 16-year-old "Sparky" Riddle nearly three hours to weave by hand, they are hand woven from totally Non-Allergenic Acrylic and Polyester, whether you buy one for yourself or a dozen to share with others, this is one of the nicest things you can possibly do.

Here is a direct link to ordering...

Purchase or Donate Project Love SparkScarfs

And here is their main site...

Project Love® Remember the Children Foundation

100% of your SparkScarfs purchases goes to Project Love, this is a way to contribute, to do something good.

Orders are placed directly through Project Love at the first link above but please do post in this topic letting us all know how many you are ordering. This is something very special to my daughter and to our family, we are very proud of all she is doing to help make the world a better place. For shipping costs on large quantities contact annriddle@roadrunner.com and one more point, if you would like to buy a quantity and have each one shipped individually to the recipient Sparky will enclose a hand-signed card indicating the gift is from you.

We are confident IHC185 Members will want to participate.

I'll be making an order for family Christmas presents plus a donation to the shelter if Sparky can handle the work load.

I'm thinking 9 total in my family, with multiple shipping addresses. I'll get that info together in an email to Sparky and then send my payment thru PayPal.


Best Regards,

Hey Ed, I'll be right behind you....but I'm thinking that with our orders, Man, I don't know if one Young Lady can do it all, because I'm sure there are going to be many others as well....

Right now I'm looking for at least 22 scarfs....

I will use the order form in the Lin's post and will forward my check to you, Sparky....

Good luck with your project, hope everything works out for the best....

Regards,

Jerry

P.S. Is it possible to get the color "Crimson"...?

Dear Mr. Parsons,

Thank you for very much, I really appreciate your support of this cause. There are six colors (Beige, Black, Light Blue, Purple, Red, and White), let me know what colors you want sent to what addresses.

Project Love, City Mission, and I are very grateful in the support of not only teens in the public school, but also in helping The City Mission to help others who are less fortunate.

I look forward to making the Project Love "SparkScarfs" for you and your family.

Thanks again,

Ann "Sparky" Riddle

Mr King,

I will be honored to make these Project Love "SparkScarfs" for you, for Mr. Parsons and for everyone else. It will be no problem for me to be sure they are done in time to send as gifts in the upcoming holiday season.

I am so happy that I already have 31 orders from you and Mr. Parsons for the Project Love "SparkScarfs" I make, I look forward to getting more and I promise that every order will be filled.

The red "SparkScarf" is a deep crimson the yarn company calls "candy apple" red. When I looked up "crimson" on the Internet, I found "Crimson Tide" and the color shown there matches my scarfs. I am mailing you a sample of the red yarn and will be happy to do so on colors for others.

Thank you both for your support,

Ann "Sparky" Riddle

Wow, I too will place an order but for now I must remark at what a wonderful young lady you are. You have such a kind and generous heart and a great moral foundation that is just not seen as much today in children your age.
My hats off to you Ann, and to your parents as well for raising such a wonderful young woman.

Dear Mr. Abell,

Thank you for purchasing a Project Love "SparkScarf" to donate to The City Mission, so far, I have made and donated 7, yours will be the 8th so this makes me very happy. My contact person at The City Mission is excited about all the scarfs that have been donated, they are going to put them to good use.

Dear Mr. Parsons,

Thank you for your additional order, I will make sure they are all made and shipped on time.

With all these orders of SparkScarfs, I have steadily been decreasing the amount of time it takes for me to make a SparkScarf from 3 hours to 2 hours. Thank you all for your help in this project, I can't thank everyone enough.
