AT&T employee Peggy Alberg  and a few of her colleagues created a DOT team, called Fiber to the World Yarn club to use yarn to create clothing for those in need of warmth.  (Do One Thing or DOT, is a movement at AT&T that invites every employee to choose to do one thing to make themselves, their communities or the company a little better.) 

Together,  all the members have knitted, crocheted or quilted more than 2,000 warm clothing items for people and animals – from blankets and sweaters to socks and hats.

The Fiber to the World Yarn club (and DOT team) requested that the $2,500 award be sent to Handmade Especially for You, a not for profit who supports women leaving abusive domestic situations.
