Project Knitting And Crocheting for Nepal - Closing 30/11/18
Thank you to our beautiful knitters and crocheters for your overwhelming response to our knitting beanies for the Royal Children's Hospital, who have now said they have enough (we will send your knitted babies beanies to other hospitals in need) and so we are now able to assist other organisations.
Thanks to everyone for sharing and the response of so many people who want to help out with knitting has led us to seek out for other organisations, such as Project Knitting For Nepal. You can read about the fantastic project, but now it is closed and won’t be accepting any further knitted items. We have other places that require knitting on the Cazinc Blog. Click here.
Our last knitting project reached over 100,000 readers.
Let's see if we can share this article around to reach over 200,000 readers.
Cazinc's favorited networker, Michael Gallus from Footy's 4 All told me about Sarah. Today I spoke to gorgeous Sarah, who has kindly written her story for us (another stay tuned) on how a trip to Nepal changed her life. Sarah will be travelling back to Nepal in November and told me how they desperately need knitted items. Here are the details for you and thank you again for your support.
What Is It?
Project Knitting for Nepal is about encouraging those with the talent and skill of knitting and crocheting, to use their creativity to help those who are in need! We are currently collecting hand-made knitted and crocheted items to donate to disadvantaged children in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Sarah will be returning to Nepal this year spend six months working with education and aid communities to re-establish schools destroyed in the 2015 earthquakes. Sarah will also be working directly with a non-government school currently being established to provide education to those who cannot afford it. There are over 20 young children in this small school already whose families cannot afford to send them to school. There are hundreds of other children in the same position.
With the Nepalese winter months also around the corner, these children, among many others, cannot afford warm clothing. So Lion Heart has launched Project Knitting for Nepal, to make warm, knitted, handmade items of love, possible for these children.
There’s something about having your own bright, colourful beanie, knitted with love. Or a pair of thick, warm socks to wear to bed at night. Or fingerless gloves to keep your hands thawed while you learn to write. For these children, something like this would brighten their whole lives. It’s not hard to make a big difference in a small way. We can help these children, and in the meantime, thrive in our own lives, doing something we enjoy, knowing it’s making a difference.
Lion Heart is a non-government Project and Passion created to help those in need while championing those with PTS (post-traumatic stress) and other mental health challenges. Our tagline at Lion Heart is ‘Courage to Thrive’ and that’s what I love to help others to do – Have the courage to overcome challenges and audacity to THRIVE!” By doing this, I hope to raise awareness, support and opportunities for anyone experiencing difficulties or stresses in their own lives.
Here’s how you can help:
1. KNIT or CROCHET one or two, or any number of the following items:
• Fingerless gloves
• Neck warmers
• Small blankets
You can use whatever wool you like (pure or synthetic or a combination) and use whatever patterns you like. There are many free patterns now available on the web.
The children we are collecting for are aged 1 – 15 years old. Their sizes and shapes vary, so no matter the size of your item, we will find a new loving owner for it.
2. Take a photo of your creation, or of you and your friend's knitting and send it to:
• Private Message - Facebook Page ‘Lion Heart Courage.’
• Upload to the ‘Project Knitting for Nepal’ Event Page – through the ‘Lion Heart Courage’ Facebook page
• At your consent, we will share your loving work on our Facebook page!
• (Sharing a photo is optional)
3. Send your completed item/s to:
Knitting for Nepal
PO BOX 265
Burnie, Tasmania 7320
Project Knitting for Nepal starts NOW! I will be in Nepal until late November 2018 and can coordinate the delivery of any donated items to Nepal while I am there. There is no hurry to have donated items completed by any date, we are regularly travelling to Nepal and will deliver your knitted product as soon as we can.
When I donate items I will share photos of your loving creations on the Lion Heart Facebook page, with the new grateful owners (at the donor's and recipient's consent) or email them back to you.
