Free Scarves In Ottawa A Helping Hand In Freezing Temperatures
The so-called polar vortex has Canada in its grip once again, with temperatures plummeting down to -35°C across Ontario on Tuesday, reports the National Post, with Ottawa experiencing an average of -23°C. Going outside without a scarf is not an option, which is why one kindhearted soul is trying to make sure every citizen is properly dressed.
A picture posted on Reddit on Monday evening showed a statue of army hero Andrew Mynarski, tied with a purple scarf and a tag that read, “I am not lost! If you’re stuck out in the cold, take this scarf to keep warm!”
According to the Ottawa Citizen, scarves were placed on each of the statues in The Valiants Memorial on Wellington Street.
Remember when someone did this last year and we were all inspired to do it? Well it’s the first day of Autumn and the weather is starting to change so get your knitting and crochet needles out and start making scarves and hats to hang on trees and benches and statues and everything else! Don’t forget to make a tag that says it’s free! And if you go to a Goodwill or Value Village (or similar) you can find large bags of random yarn for very cheap! Let’s go!
