When Miranda was diagnosed with Severe Crohn's Disease and was unable to go out into the community and volunteer as she did in the past, that was when The Smitten Mitten Expedition was born.  Miranda took up her crochet hook and with donations of yarn from family and friends locally and across the U.S she has been making hats, scarves, ear warmer headbands, hand warmers, etc since 2009 to help keep the homeless and poor warm each winter in South/Central Ohio.  Miranda Donates her crocheted items to a men's shelter in Ross County Ohio, a women and children shelter in Pickaway County Ohio, and a ministry that works with at risk youth within the Columbus City School District in Franklin County Ohio
