campaign by afghans for Afghans. The campaign runs through September. Please knit a pair of wool socks for a child or woman and mail them before the end of the month. Your gift will make a positive impact on the life of a child.
To see the need for these small comforts, I recommend reading Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, a book illustrating how one person can make a huge difference in the lives of others. Greg has helped build schools in Pakistan in the most rural and isolated corners of the country for several years and formed a non-profit organization, Central Asia Institute. Three Cups of Tea will inspire you and will help you understand the struggles of the common people and to understand the political situation in the region a bit better.
By supporting the efforts of the Central Asia Institute and afghans for Afghans, you can make a real difference.
