In our commitment to community and the need for outreach. We’ve been wanting to create a map locating service to help The Crochet Crowd find groups and charities locating near them.
We understand that it is not practical to ship donations across the country or even half way around the world when donations are needed in our very own backyards. With this new locating service, we hope to provide locations near our fans so they can make a difference.
The map will provide two things:
- Organizations and/or charities looking for crochet based items such as blankets, hats, scarves and etc. We are not listing any charity that is wanting cash only. The organization must be accepting crochet donations on an on-going basis.
- Crochet Groups Meeting Locations. Maybe your public library has something? Maybe you are the organizer of a group in your area?
Our mapping service extends the globe. We are not limiting listings to be only in Canada / USA. The new service has been added to the top menu of The Crochet Crowd Website. As listings are added, you will see the map evolve. The mapping will show you exact locations of the charities and groups to keep our mapping information legit.
To see this map and/or learn how to get listed. Visit our new Group and Charity Locator Page.
