The Red Scarf Project, a project of the Orphan.org, collects red scarves to send in Valentine's Day care packages to college students who have been raised in foster care.
"These brave young people are going it on their own and trying to improve their lives and the community by attending college. The care packages are welcome tokens of encouragement to young people who otherwise receive little to no mail. Your scarf should be soft (any material), unisex design, and approximately 60 inches long by 5 to 8 inches wide. "
