Join the FEEL GOOD campaign!
Lands' End is making it easy for you to feel good about shopping!!
For every "FeelGood" Sweater that is purchased, Lands' End will donate signature FeelGood yarn to One Heart Foundation’s Warming Families, a nationwide knitting charity. Lands’ End expects to donate thousands of pounds of yarn to the charity where volunteers plan to knit up to 25,000 hats and other items to warm the homeless and displaced...that is something to *feel good* about :)
Vickie Howell, best-selling craft author and host of TV’s Knitty Gritty, has made a knitting "how-to" video for the cause:
As if this campaign wasn't generous enough already, Lands' End and Vickie Howell are hosting a twitter party to increase awarness, here is the info:
