KNIT/ CROCHET A SQUARE

 

I 'm daily browsing the net for new ideas and creative input. Last week my surf tour passed this interesting website:

knit a square

 

 

 

 

This charity organisation is looking for squares  of 8" X 8" or 20 X 20 cm either knitted or crochetted, to make blankets for children whom are infected by HIV and are living in poverty.

I'm hoping to inspire you via my blog to participate and make a knitted/crochetted contribution. Why wouldn't you, you can do what you like best: Be creative, knit/crochet, use stash or scraps to make something to help somebody.

A dollar lasts a day, blankets are for life.

It costs only the price of a standard international stamp and empower local communities to make a difference.

Millions of babies and children around the world live in poverty and are cold. If you love knitting, (and crocheting) then knitting for charity is a wonderful way to help make a child or baby blanket to keep these children warm.

Knit/crochet and send just one square (or more) and it will join thousands of other knitted squares from around the world to be joined into blankets for these children,
many of whom are affected by HIV.
