Knit4Charities knit4charities@knit4charities.groups.io

This Australian Group is for enthusiastic knitters, crocheters, sewers, who would like donate their work to charities. Most of us donate locally to save on postage so we can buy more yarn! Our aim is to share with each other charities support and the types of items they use. Swap stories, patterns, ideas and work together to help those in need.

All members of the community are welcome to join and to nominate charities for the group and/or individuals to support. No charity is too big or too small for us to help. In fact the smaller the charity the better because they are the ones who struggle and survive mainly on the goodness of others.

For whatever you like to knit, crochet or sew I can find a needy body be it human or animal.

TOTAL DONATIONS GIVEN over 450,500 to date!!

GOLDEN OLDIES ANIMAL RESCUE (ACT)

Dog jumpers in all sizes

Golden Oldies rescue older pets who have lost their owners or whose owners can no longer take care of them, usually because they have moved to a nursing home.  They take care of vet needs, then place them in foster care before finding a forever home.  Sometimes the pets are very ill and are placed in palliative care, given love for however long they have left.
