It's that time of year again. The folks at YarnCanada are looking for do-good knitters to give yarn to for their charity knitting and have partnered with an old employer of mine!
They have this to say at www.yarncanada.ca/for-good:
We're Giving Yarn To Your Good CauseWe know so many wonderful people knit and crochet for good causes. We'd love to hear your stories and help out!
We've partnered with Bernat Yarn and Patons Yarn to give 12 individuals and groups a total of $2000 worth of yarn to use towards their good works.
Since we get requests from all over, and we'd like to do something nice for our neighbors, this is open to Canadians and Americans.
Here’s the yarn we’ll be giving away:
1 x $500 of yarn to a Canadian group who knits or crochets for a good cause
1 x $500 of yarn to an American group who knits or crochets for a good cause
10 x $100 of yarn to Canadian or American individuals or groups who knit or crochet for a good cause
All you need to do to apply is fill out the form below and tell us your story. What will you use the yarn for, what impact has this or previous projects had, and anything else important to your story.
If you have any photos we’d love to see them too.
