CALLING #knitwits for @67Blankets #SSS #Charity #SouthAfrica

 

ATTENTION ALL #KNITWITS AND #WOOLIGANS!!!

The #SSS (Secret Scarf Shhh….Mission) is drawing closer.  Have you started crocheting or knitting your contribution to this cause yet?

Our annual #SSS will take place on 13 July 2017 at 15:00 (3pm). 67 Blankets ambassadors from all over South Africa will summon their volunteers and gather their donated scarves. They will select an area or areas in their towns or cities where people are especially destitute. On 13 July at 3pm, they will gather at a specific point in that area to distribute their collection of scarves among the people as they come home from work.

You must keep your eyes peeled, for the country will suddenly be painted all colours of the rainbow. Poles and fences will sprout bright woollen scarves and trees will bear scarf-fruit. Attached to each one will be a personal message from @67Blankets in the language of the area.

To make all this happen, we will obviously need more scarves. You can therefore be of enormous help if you get involved. Whether you donate one scarf or 20, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that your scarf will be a gift to someone who desperately needs to keep warm. Your scarf will show a person that there are actually still people in the world who care about their fellow human beings.

Cannot knit or crochet? No problem. You can donate towards the cause (funds or wool) or you can sponsor a friend or family member who can knit or crochet by purchasing their wool.

Just to encourage you more, I am sharing another scarf pattern today. It may not be such a warm scarf, but when made with thicker wool, perhaps it will do the job.

I give you: The Island Lace Crochet Scarf. Find the pattern here: bit.ly/2t4Olnt

REMEMBER: Get in touch or just comment on this post if  you wish to donate or become more involved with the project. Or simply complete the contact form at the bottom of this post.
