Knitting is empowering

It is Women’s History Month and today is International Women’s History Day. This year’s focus is on “Women’s education-women’s empowerment”. The National Women’s History Project was founded in 1980 and is an educational nonprofit organization. Our mission is to recognize and celebrate the diverse and historic accomplishments of women by providing information and educational materials and programs.” A quote from nwhp.

Betty speaks about charities for peace in Afghanistan and Rwanda, hope for preemies and cancer patients, and the love we can share with the homeless, abandoned animals, and the less fortunate.   For more… OpenRoadMedia GIVEAWAY  -click through to leave a comment, one person will win “The Knitter’s Home Companion” eBook by Michelle Edwards
