Awesome Humans: Everyone Involved in Chase The Chill

It’s happening again this year.

As the weather gets colder, particularly in snowy Canada, groups organize clothing and coat drives for the homeless. Not everyone in need is able to take advantage of these efforts, of course. So small, local knitting groups go rogue—and start leaving scarves around the city with “I AM NOT LOST!” tags on them. The idea is that anyone in need can grab a warm scarf and maybe find some comfort in both the item and the thoughtful intention to help out a stranger, no strings attached.

You can read a great round-up of the various Chase The Chill efforts over on Yahoo! News Canada, but it looks like the movement began in Pennsylvania in 2010, and new groups continue to spring up all over the U.S. and Canada. Wherever there is winter, and kind-hearted knitters, you just might find this “yarn-bombing with a cause.”

And that’s awesome.
