Project Amigo


Have you heard of Project Amgio? I had never till the first of the year when they contacted my local yarn store Yvies asking if any of the patrons would be interested in making squares.

Project Amigo is a non profit organization that supports students from Colima, Mexico, so that they can create their own educational opportunities and better their quality of life. They have a need for 6 inch squares that will be used for afghans that will be distributed to poor families of the students in Mexico who are being sponsored by Project Amigo.
