afghans for Afghans
Show your support with an In-VEST for Peace Pin or Magnet.
The original In-VEST for Peace watercolor was created by Rosemary Hill, who generously donated her art to afghans for Afghans. Rosemary's painting was inspired by our In-VEST for Peace knit and crochet patterns to make for Afghan girls and boys. Lovingly created by Americans and Canadians, these wool vests warm the hearts and torsos of children who need to know that we still care and who await a more secure, peaceful future. Rosemary's playful art communicates a most sincere message. Rosemary is a San Francisco Bay Area artist, graphic designer, jewelry maker, and knitter.
afghans for Afghans is a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that sends handknit and crocheted blankets and garments to the beleaguered people of Afghanistan. In partnership with the San Francisco office of the American Friends Service Committee, the afghans for Afghans project started in late 2001 in response to the war that unfolded after 9/11. The people of Afghanistan still need our attention.
