Here’s one a friend of mine just told me about the Dulaan Project .It is a group knitting for the impoverished in Mongolia.

Another Chemocap Group

One of my favorites http://www.cubsforkids.com/This charity has knitters make outfits for teddy bears to give to kids in homeless shelters. The sweaters are great stash busters!!!

Thank you so much for the list. I’ve only been knitting for about a year, but have wanted to do “something” with my new found hobby. This list has been very helpful. I just can’t decide which charity to knit for! :slight_smile:

Mission: To incorporate charity knitting into our already busy knitting repertoire.[/CENTER]

[I]
You may be interested in joining our group if:[/I]

[ul]
[li]You already love to knit (or crochet, sew, quilt). Why not share your skills and creativity with others?
[/li]
[li]You are interested in learning a new craft and would like to learn from others in a casual, friendly environment.
[/li]
[li]You have thought about volunteering and felt overwhelmed with options or a busy schedule.
[/li]
[li]You are a creative person looking for a group who shares your interests.
[/li][/ul]

Come check it out, even if you are not sure about knitting for charity. It is not a requirement, simply an enhancement to something you may already be doing.

We will be choosing recipients for our group projects every 2 months (6 times per year). This way you will have plenty of time for your own knitting projects, and you can participate in the charity projects that speak to your heart.

Check out our website to view our latest project and meetup events!

That group is in Connecticut, so we won’t all be able to participate.

I have long felt that poor rural people get very little press coverage by our media. If you’re looking for a GREAT charity, run totally by volunteers, you should check out www.BabyThreadsofNH.com. They help the many truly poor people in northern New Hampshire and Vermont. They need knitted goods for any age person. I recently visited them and saw them in action. A more dedicated group of volunteers you will never meet! Anything you send will be most greatly appreciated.

This broke my heart - we don’t want babies going home wrapped in newspaper!

Thanks, jillliv!
That is a WAY cool project! :thumbsup:

I’m definitely participating in that one.

Does anyone know of knitted/crocheting charity dedicated to moms/parents of babies who died with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)?

I was looking at Threads of Love, but that seems more focused towards those parents that have lost babies to miscarriage, fetal death or prematurity.

Thanks for any assistance.

This is a site I just found out about. It is an orphanage in Kaz… (ah cant’ spell it, read the link) A woman posted about it on Ravelry in the International Adoption group. Anyway, it sounds like a pretty small group trying to supply these kids. I suggested to her to contact Warm Woolies to see if they could help, they have had help from Children in Common in the past.

In January they need socks and I have already started a pair that I will be felting.

Anyone who wants to send warm wool socks to very cold kids please check it out.
