1000 wraps have just been sent to Nepal and World Vision has requested 2000 more.
|The start of my Wrap With Love contribution.|
WRAP WITH LOVE . WHAT THEY DO
'Cold humanity is our concern, people caring about other people.'
There are millions of people in the world suffering extreme cold. In 1992 Wrap with Love began with the idea to help as many people as possible by providing warm Wraps to ward off hypothermia and in the past 20 years we have sent more than 323,000 Wraps to people in over 75 countries, including Australia, with the help of our hardworking and generous volunteers.
Most of us can knit and sew. Just one square provides one twenty-eighth of warmth, and collectively, twenty-eight assembled squares create one whole warm and sheltering Wrap.
I have joined a group which meets at my Church, however volunteer groups meet all over the country. You can knit away at home and send them to Wrap With Love or drop them off to a participating group. You can get more info here.
Time to get knitting (or crocheting, which I can't do but am hoping to learn from some of the lovely ladies at the Church!).
Do you love to knit?
