It costs a lot to acknowledge, sort and dispatch donated knitting. Knit for Peace sends an estimated £5,000,000 worth of knitting to people in need every year. We realise that our knitters are generous in making and delivering their knitting and we truly appreciate it. If you can spare any funds to help us with our projects, it would help even more.
All of the proceeds from the sale of donated/handmade items, greeting cards, needle cases and bags goes toward supporting Knit for Peace and its delivery of warm knitting worldwide.
If you're looking for even more ways to support, we also have a raffle!

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.
We also set up and foster Knit for Peace groups here in the UK. Our women's prison group has been a great success - with a waiting list to get in, group members have found it easier to quit smoking because they now knit instead!! They also report that they are feeling happier, knowing that they are helping those in need. Knitting improves both mental and physical health. We hope to set up more groups, working alongside medical professionals, in pain clinics - helping chronic pain sufferers to alleviate some of their symptoms.
