Knit4Charities is an Australia wide group of people who knit, crochet and sew for charities around our Country. Members self-fund all materials and postage to get items to where they are needed most. We work to a yearly Calendar of Charities where we support various organisations, usually around 36 - 40 per year. Members are also encouraged to source needy charities within their own community to save on postage costs. All members are able to nominate a charity for our Calendar so that we cover the whole of Australia each year. We also have 3 dedicated State groups - SA, WA and Tassie - who give to charities within their own State.
All monetary donations we receive are Tax Deductible (over $2). We also accept donations of yarn, postage stamps and prepaid postpacs. Anyone can also donated new handmade items such as beanies, fingerless gloves, scarves, blankets etc. etc. for us to distribute. There is a list of what is needed throughout the year on our website.
We not only help those less fortunate in our communities, we support each other through close friendships and for those with medical problems often confined to home, the opportunity to chat with likeminded people on a daily basis.
