Knit One, Purl One, Give One
Are you a crafty bugger? And super kind? Well, then... you should combine those two awesome things and make cool stuff for those in need!
Knitters and crocheters are well-known for making things for other people. Why not use up some of your leftover yarn to create a warm hat, scarf or a pair of mittens for someone in need? Some cities even encourage you to tag a scarf with a note and tie it around a tree for the homeless letting them know that they can take it if they're cold. Another idea is to create tiny hats for newborns in the NICU. Hospitals often have a 'hat tree' or something similar where nurses or new parents can choose a beautiful hand-knit cap for their little one. And, if you're a knitter/crocheter, you know how quickly you can whip one of those out...so get to it!
I knit hats that I donate to my church. Those hats are then handed out at our community meal during the winter months. I have also donated them to Chemo bags of hope. They are given to Chemo patients who need to keep their head warm while going through treatment. Over the past decade I have donated hundreds of hats.

I knit mittens, hats, scarves, and afghans to donate to Warm Up America! Warm Up America! then finds those in need and assists with ensuring those that need the afghans, hats, mittens, etc get those items.

I find recycled gift bags & put crocheted scarf & a card inside. I keep them in my car to give away as thank you to helpful strangers or cheer up someone having a rough day.
