Everyday we are reminded of how precious life is. The Haiti earthquake has only brought this home more than ever. Save the Children launched an emergency appeal to help the children and families in earthquake devastated Haiti.
Although Knit One Save One is not directly related to the Haiti Appeal – it is another way that you can help improve the lives of impoverished children around the world, and the response to this project has been amazing. Everyday we receive more squares and blankets and more supporters of our project. We have just clicked over 8000 squares. So we are well on our way to reaching our 80,000 square goal… the first 10% is always the hardest right!
This past week, we have received all shapes and sizes… it is creatively inspiring to witness how the 20cm x 20cm instructions can be interpreted. But all interpretations are appreciated – so no fear if your knitting talent has not yet fully matured. A truly talented soul did send in these green, leaf squares though. Superb.
Use your skills (or gain some skills), knit a square or two, and save a life.
