Sweaters for the homeless

“Since May 5, artist Maggie Leininger has been placing one handknit miniature sweater in a public location every day hoping that it will be found and collected. She will do so until May 4, 2011. Each collector will then be asked to place a monetary value upon the object and to donate that amount to the National Coalition for the Homeless, Washington, D.C. Detailed descriptions and pictures of where the sweaters are placed can be found on the artist’s ARTivention blog at www.artivention.wordpress.com. For information on how to participate (knitting or placing a sweater), e-mail the artist at info@maggie-leininger.com.”
