Originally founded in 2001, The Afghans for Angel Project (AFA Project) is a not for profit, philanthropic organization whose primary program is to construct and distribute comforting, hand-made, afghans to children with life-threatening illnesses. Other projects include blankets, booties, and hat for neo-natal intensive care units, and chemo caps for kids. These items are given to children, usually by the request of a friend or family member at no cost to the child or the child's family.

The mission of the AFA Project is to educate, encourage, and promote grass-roots giving programs and philanthropic efforts developed by individuals and groups worldwide.

Through the donations of time, energy, and hand-made items from crafters across the globe, and the generous financial support of individuals and businesses worldwide, the AFA Project is able to continue its philanthropic efforts from year to year.
