We provide, free of charge, homemade knitted and crocheted shawls, made by volunteers like you, to those with dementia/Alzheimer's Disease. These soft "hugs" convey compassion and security so important to human life, especially for those who may feeling confused and unsure.
What does a hug mean? It is a tender touch that conveys warm-heartedness, companionship, security and other positive feelings. When my mother was riddled with Alzheimer's Disease, her favorite and most comforting position was in my arms.

We are looking for amazing volunteers, from beginners to experts, to knit and/or crochet these happy and comforting shawls to give out to memory-care facilities around the United States. The knitting pattern we use is SO simple but the rewards immeasurable.
