Sweater #330


To commemorate the project for posterity, I sent one sweater off to the National Coalition for the Homeless.  Megan Hustings, the Director of Development, and I have been in correspondence over the past year and a half regarding the project and any proceeds that could be directly attributed to the finding of the sweaters. The letter outlines the completion of the project on my part and thanks the organization for letting ARTivention sponsor them for this collective endeavor.  And while Megan has been keeping up with the blog, now she will have a sweater in person to look at and be reminded of all of us who have knitted and placed a sweater around the country in support for the organization and its mission.

  1. Thank you so much for sending this! I’m sending you a photo of the sweater in use. But more than this, all of us at NCH thank you for your amazing efforts! Creating change starts with our own consciousness, and builds from there. This project has reached thousands, if even through just a quick glance, who became reminded of our neighbors, friends, and family who long to be warm and home.
