Giving | World Vision Knit for Kids

We’ve been busy this summer preparing for the coming cold months. One of the most rewarding projects we’ve been involved with has been World Vision’s Knit for Kids. In fact, our knitted items will be packaged this week and mailed off to Pennsylvania.

What is it?

Knit for Kids began in 1996 though Guideposts magazine as a way to send hand-knit or crocheted sweaters to children in need.

Today, over half a million children have received something new for the first time in their lives. As children grow out of their sweaters, they have become cherished hand-me-downs to other children.

To keep up with growing demand, Guideposts magazine turned the Knit for Kids program over to long-time partner World Vision.


Who can get involved?

Anyone. Do you knit or crochet? Patterns are provided for both applications. They are easy to knit or crochet and will make such a profound difference to children as far away as Armenia, Nicaragua, Swaziland and Tanzania, and as close to home as Appalachia, New Orleans and the Bronx.

Here is the World Vision link to more information on this worthy project, including patterns.
