Come, (learn to) knit, chat (with some wonderful women), munch (on wine and cheese) and … DO SOME GOOD!
This fall, we are knitting for the [Knit-A-Square]1 campaign to help warm AIDS orphans in South Africa. There are 1.9 children whose lives have been compromised by the twin perils of HIV/AIDS and poverty. Many of these children live in shack settlements. Some head up families of their siblings together with other children. Some live alone, without shelter, in hills and dumps around the cities.
We will be knitting 8" acrylic or wool squares that will be sewn up into blankets for these children.
But, if you prefer to come and work on your own project, you can do so provided you make a monetary donation (amount of your choice) to help cover shipping costs to South Africa. Additional funds collected will be donated to [Save the Children]2.
Instructions on how to knit an 8" square will be provided at the event. Affordable supplies (needles and yarn) will also be available for purchase. If you’d like to use your own yarn, please be sure to specify whether you are donating a wool or an acrylic square.
Wine and cheese will be served.
If you don’t know how to knit, someone can teach you.
Please RSVP email@example.com.
Feel free to invite a friend!
