Knots of Love - Bringing Warmth, Comfort and Dignity to People Around the Globe

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

I found this charity through the non-profit Knitting for Charity on Facebook.

Knots of Love is based in Costa Mesa, California. Their mission is to gather the volunteer efforts of knitters and crocheters making caps to bring warmth, comfort, and dignity to individuals who have lost their hair. To date, they have donated more than 100,000 caps to men, women, and children undergoing Chemotherapy, burn victims, brain surgery patients, head trauma patients, and individuals with Alopecia. Knots of Love partners with more than 400+ treatment facilities across the country, Canada, Mexico and overseas to deliver these caps of care to those who need them. Visit their FaceBook page for more information and to listen to the video testimonials of patients, care takers, and donors this charity has touched.
How you can help right now? 
From first hand experience I know that charities benefit from cash donations.
But if you are like me and you just don't have a lot of cash, you can donate your time and talent...and maybe a small part of your yarn stash. 
So get out those needles and a bit of yarn and knit or crochet a cap to warm the head and heart of someone who needs your love. Please print and fill out this form to send in with your donation and be sure to check their How to Donate page and List of yarns for guidelines for specific guidelines before you start your project.

Not sure which design to knit or crochet? There are over 40 patterns with terrific photos and clear pattern instructions to get you started.

You can even save on postage by checking their site to see if there is a cap drop location in your neck of the woods. If you have questions, e-mail them at christine(at)knotsoflove(dot)org.

And finally, go visit Chase Banks' Giving page. Starting September 6th, 2012, you can vote for Knots of Love to win a share of $5 million dollars for charity that will go a long way in helping their efforts to support our communities.
