Crochet for charity?

Forum: Crochet Talk

Hi all, ive just created a group on facebook with a few friends. We are crocheting hats and blankets for special care babies and the homeless.

Have you ever crocheted/knitted for charity? If so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I sell some of my items in a shop to try to make a little to cover my yarn and maybe make a little money. Some of the items do not sell so I try to make items I can give as gifts for my family or use/wear myself. I have a few things I might like to donate, but I am not sure who to donate them to.
