Britt laid the groundwork for this article in leading a winter clothing and toiletry drive for WISH, a shelter reaching out to the high-risk population of female sex-trade workers living on the streets of Vancouver, BC's downtown Eastside.
Applying her passion for the craft of knitting to that experience, she decided to write an article which empowers others to use their passion for knitting to reach out to members of their own communities. In the article, Britt relates advice from charity knitting project mavens at afghans for Afghans, Mother Bear Project and Warm Up ! America. She sincerely thanks Ann Rubin, Amy Berman and Mary Colucci for their contribution in empowering others to make a contribution in their own communities.
