The Red Thread Project

I'd like to thank the following people and organizations for their unflagging support of The Red Thread Project®. Their donations of experience, time and energy illustrate the community spirit and creativity the project endeavors to nourish.

A special thank you to all the children and adults who have donated their handmade hats.

Kaz McCue – It all started from an opportunity provided by this amazing artist, curator and educator.
