I thought that this charitable foundation was worthy of a mention on the MFC blog. For those of you fiber lovers out there, if you have any unwanted fibers, here is a GREAT cause to donate to during the Gulf Coast's time of need. Let's show how much the Midwest cares!
Some information from the Matter of Trust web-site...
Anyone and Everyone: salons, groomers, wool farmers and individuals can sign up to donate hair, fur, waste wool... clippings and nylons and funding for our Hair for Oil Spills program.
OIL SPILL HAIRBOOMS AND HAIRMATS
Thousands of salons, groomers, wool farmers, individuals... mail in hair, fur, wool... clippings, swept up off their floors. The fibers are stuffed into recycled nylons and covered in mesh to make booms or, when possible, woven into hair mats.
