A Huge Thank You To Our Knitting Community
A few months ago my son's girlfriend Abbey, who is a nurse at the Royal Children's Hospital asked me to knit a few beanies for the premature babies, which I did and enjoyed. I said to Abbey, "why don't I write an article and maybe some other knitters might enjoy creating some beanies for the babies?"
From this article, which has received over 180,000 readers, we have been blown away by the number of knitters who have become a part of the Cazinc community. As you can see by the photos and video on this article, we received thousands of beanies, which we have managed to help with the RCH, who have too many beanies now, so we have also been able to research other hospitals to send the beanies.
Your generosity has now extended to knitting for children of Nepal, where lovely Sarah is travelling for six months and urgently needs knitted items you can send to Sarah in Tasmania, which you can read about and find all the details here. We have a massive box of beanies we will be sending to Sarah. If you wish to keep knitting beanies or other items, Sarah needs items for children 1 plus years of age, which is in the link above.
We also have found gorgeous Hayden's Helping Hands, a charity run by two school children who help with the homeless who also need knitted items and food. You can read the article here.
I was going to write a Facebook post, but after collating all the beanies today, I wanted to share an article. The past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for me, and I feel like I have been on a beautiful journey with the most beautiful people. I have never known such generosity and felt so blessed to read all your messages of support and your sharing stories with me. Knitters are the most beautiful people.
Listed below are the names we have collated of knitters who sent in items. We hope we have everyone and apologise if we have left anyone out.
