The Little Yellow Duck Project" and it really appealed to me. Let me give you a little background. It was started by a woman in the UK in honor of her best friend. Her friend died last year at the age of 26 while waiting for an organ transplant. There was no matching organ available and her friend wanted to get out the word about blood, bone marrow, organ and tissue donation. The girl had collected all things ducky, so The Little Yellow Duck Project was born.
This is how it works. We make a duck. Simple. We can knit one or sew one or sculpt one or whatever we choose to do. It doesn't even have to be yellow. There are even patterns provided on the site and they don't require much in time or materials.
The idea is to make the finder smile and become aware of the need for blood and organ donors. To learn more about this sweet but important project, go to the website, The Little Yellow Duck Project.org There is also a group on Ravelry with info and discussion for all you knitters
