Handmade Especially For You wants every woman who comes into a shelter to receive a comfort scarf simply because she was brave enough to leave her abusive situation. We do not see comfort scarves as rewards or incentives for good behavior in the shelter or for following rules or anything other than "congratulations" for leaving abuse. Leaving an abusive environment is a huge step for the woman who takes it.
Handmade wants to make an impact on the women who receive the scarves, most of whomhave never received a personal gift, much less a handmade personal gift. Wewant receiving thesescarves to help lift their self-esteem and help them to begin changing their lives. We hope the scarves are a symbol of every woman's transformation.
The scarves are not for sale. They are gifts, which we give from our hearts. Yarn companies donate the yarn we use and women of all ages, ethnicities and social economic statuses donate their time to knit or crochet these scarves. This is why we believe that they have such a powerful impact.
