Guardian Angel knitting program giveaway

I get a lot, A LOT, of emails asking me to mention this or that on my blog. If I said yes to everything I’d have no more space on my blog for my stuff but I had to say yes to this mention especially since I get to share a bit of knitting love with you. So I’ve got a quick little giveaway today for first in best dressed thanks to the Guardian Angel knitting program which is now in it’s 14th year. It’s all about donating knitted and crocheted items to needy children in Australia and since the program started there have been over 2 million recipients. That is one impressive statistic.

Guardian Pharmacy are working with Variety and ask for knitted and crocheted clothing and blankets for children. These are then distributed to children and babies in shelters, children in need and also aboriginal communities. All you need to do is make a little something and take it to your nearest Guardian Pharmacy before the 31st August. I’m using this ball of wool and needles to make the little aviatrix hat to donate. Hats are so easy to make and baby and kids hats don’t use much wool or take up much time. Perfect for this busy mummy of a newborn.

And the first 9 people (who live in Australia) to leave a comment will win a little knitting pack of needles, a ball of wool and knitting booklet so that you can make a little something for the program this year. 

So what are you waiting for? Get knitting and crocheting…………………………………….you can find out more about the program here.

    What a lovely concept <3 I'm not sure where nbers are at but I'd love to be involved too.

  16. A bit late for the first nine people but I will show this to my mum. She loves to knit and is running out of babies to knit for…

  17. I just started knitting again after 30 years, I started at 8!, my nephew was being born on Wednesday and I told my mum as we waited that I needed to knit to pass the time, so I would love a chance to get those needles clacking again – thanks

  19. My mother has been knitting for this for the last few years. The grandkids no longer want hand knits, but as she’s been knitting for over 60 years, she’d be lost if she didn’t knit SOMETHING. So this fills the need and is a great cause to support. Win-win.

  20. Thank you for sharing about this! I’d never heard of it before and its such a worthy cause to knit for! I will look them up :)

  21. How wonderful, I have aboutt six crochet bennies and my little grand children don’t wear any, they are all new and I will take them tomorrow, thank you for telling us about it.
