Hearts for Portland

Hearts for Portland

Twisted is proud to support the Hearts for Portland (#Hearts4PDX) campaign. We hope you will join is in making hearts over the next three weeks.

Spread Love Not Hate

On May 26, 2017, two brave men were killed while defending two 16 year old women from a violent man in Portland, OR. A third courageous man was badly injured and was saved by the heroic actions of an Army Veteran.

Hearts for Portland is a community crafting campaign working to honor these brave heroes, as well as the young women, by hanging hearts throughout the city on June 26, the one month anniversary of the attack.

Small acts of kindness like this remind all of us that there are some brave people out there and that we will not give up on loving one another.

For more information, please visit the Hearts For Portland Facebook page.

Make Hearts for Portland

Heart Requirements: Hearts can be crocheted, knitted, sewn, drawn, or any other craft you are interested in, and any color is appropriate. Please make a loop at the top for hanging and attach a tag that says #hearts4PDX so that passerby’s will realize the significance of the heart.

Patterns: Any pattern is acceptable. For a helpful list of heart patterns, please visit the Hearts for Portland Facebook page.

Deadline: Drop your hearts off at Twisted or mail them to 2310 NE Broadway St., Portland, OR 97232. All hearts must be received by June 23.
