.......and just like that, 2-1/2 hours later......the CHALLENGE HAS BEEN COMPLETED!!! Thank you all for your pledges!

Also, there is a possibility of a small "Cozies for Pets" challenge for this shelter. They have an onsite pet program for temporary care until outside foster care can be arranged, but the shelter does not have a lot of storage space. We are waiting to hear back from Barb, who is going to check with the shelter.

CHALLENGE #12 - 2015

Rachel and I have been on a little spring break, but we are back and ready to go with a new Challenge.   If you wish to take part in this challenge, please put your pledge in a comment on this post and we will receive it.   The numbers in each category will be updated as soon as possible when pledges come in.   Be sure to keep a record of your pledge, the challenge number, mailing deadline, and the mailing information!   When you finish making the items you have pledged, you will be mailing them directly to the address provided in the challenge.   If you have questions, please feel free to ask us.


It is amazing what can be accomplished when two women see a need, put their heads together, and come up with a way to solve the problem. Rather than trying to rephrase information of the history of this shelter, I have included a link to an In Memoriam page on the shelter's website about these two amazing women. I hope that you will take some time and read about them when you get the opportunity!

All of our items will be sent to Barbara Kochuba, of Comfort Scarves of Southwestern PA, who works as a liaison for at least nine or ten DV shelters in this area. She will personally deliver our items to this shelter.

We would like for you to be sure to indicate that your items are part of a Pink Slipper Project challenge. Feel free to download and print (on plain paper, cardstock, or business card stock) the new PSP Tags. A hole can be punched in one end and tied on to your slippers, or if you bag each pair, it could be included in the bag. Also, under your name in the return address on your package, you might include "Pink Slipper Project". This will help Barbara identify our packages for this particular shelter.

6 Women's - Large (9-1/2" to 11")   -   DONE

24 Women's - Medium (8" to 9-1/2")   -   DONE
