So, some of you might know my tumultuous past with depression. On a serious note, crafting saved me.. this yarn saved me.
It was so incredible to then get an email from Laura. She's an artist who is working with Jefferson Transitional Programs to help others work through their mental illnesses. Check out the website: http://www.jtpfriends.org/ She is going to incorporate our sari ribbons for projects used in the Recovery Art Corps!
Since 1990, Jefferson Transitional Programs (JTP) has offered vocational, supported sober living, and educational programs for more than 3,500 individuals with chronic mental illness or individuals with both mental illness and addictions, many of whom are homeless. The nonprofit’s purpose is to empower individuals with the skills and tools necessary to move from crisis to stability, victim to survivor, and a state of hopelessness to happiness. JTP offers these services until an individual can meet their program goals and objectives, determining their own length of stay with JTP.
And now, it looks like Darn Good Yarn is going to work with JTP!
Do you want to donate yarn?
You can donate to Darn Good Yarn and in turn I will send JTP yarn at my cost!
