Recycling in a season of giving

It's the holiday season and that means it is the season of charity. I am hoping that this "economic crisis" does not bring out the scrooge in us in this time of giving.

Recycling is an all encompassing term. It might mean the milk jug in your blue bin at the end of your driveway. It might mean making a craft out of a paper towel roll. It might mean using scrap fabric and making and donating a quilt to the linus project. If you havent heard of the Linus Project here is their mission statement copied form their site.
"The Project Linus Mission
Project Linus is comprised of hundreds of local chapters and thousands of volunteers across the United States. Each volunteer and local chapter all work together to help us achieve our mission statement, which states:
First, it is our mission to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.”
Second, it is our mission to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.
Together we have distributed over two million blankets to children in need since our inception in 1995."
Giving handmade blankets to termally ill children, Now that is recycling at it's finest!
