ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Knit for Kids program of Guideposts. The program is an initiative designed to demonstrate love to needy children. The project began in 1996 and was the result of a photo that appeared in the New York Times of a boy wearing a hand-knitted sweater donated by a British charity organization. A steady stream of sweaters has arrived at Guideposts distribution centers in Carmel, New York during the past nine years.
