Looking for something to do? Crochet or knit hearts for IUCC

Not everyone can march in a parade or be at a table for a few hours on a weekend. But you can still be part of the effort to inform people about IUCC. One of the best things we can do is give people a tangible connection to IUCC. Here are the instructions for creating a crocheted heart that attaches to a small card with IUCC information. These have proven to be very popular at events such as OC Pride. Contact talktome@iucc.org if you need some to distribute.

Any color will do, so this is a great way to use up those odd bits of yarn left from other projects. A size 4 or 5 crochet hook works best, but it can be done with other sizes
