A Charity Roar, Featuring Mio!

This week, A Charity Roar is featuring Mio, otherwise known as Becky!

Becky crocheted up this hat (of her own design!) for September's DADA class to be donated to The Little Hats That Grew, which is a charity in Hamilton, Ontario that collects hats, scarves, and mittens for elementary school children. What a fun way to help out folks in your local area - I'm headed off to figure out if there's something similar here in Omaha!
