Support a knitting group worldwide
Sounds wooly, but it works: in India and Pakistan, Hindu and Muslim needles click in accord. In Rwanda, Hutus and Tutsis are stitching their differences together. All because we provide women from formerly hostile communities common cause: organising knitting and sewing businesses. We encourage attendance by paying welcome income for their welcome output: warm clothes for babies, children, elderly people orphans and streetdwellers.
Take action and help knit fractured communities together again, via the Good Gifts Catalogue:
