I just received happy news from from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas in Bainbridge Island, Washington, who last month sponsored a “Hearts for Haiti” charity fundraiser to help the earthquake victims in Haiti. They offered a collection of hand-knitted hearts (made from my free pattern) for people to purchase with all proceeds to be donated to Partners in Health. The event raised almost $1,200!
Annabella was nice enough to send over a couple of photos from the fundraiser.
She said there were bowls filled with little knitted hearts all over the shop. Cute!
It’s so inspiring to see knitters working together to help a very worthy cause, in a very fun way. Certainly when I designed the little pattern in 2007 I had no idea of the potential it had in the hands of others.
If you are interested in using any of my patterns to help raise money for a good cause, please email me at info [at] mochimochiland [dot] com.
