Xmas is coming ....

Once again it has been a busy time with parcels arriving every day, sorting them out and delivering them to different charities. It amazes me on so many levels. People are so creative, they come up with all kinds of things that are amazing. I watch the news and such and always hear about how most of the money given to charities is eaten up by admin costs and seriously I do not understand it at all. People are so very generous, but a lot do not know what to do. One of the most asked questions I get asked is what can I do to help? What do you need? I always answer the same way. Do what you love to do! If you like to knit beanies then knit beanies, babies clothes, scarves, etc etc. I can find a home for every single thing that is sent to me. It may take me a day or two to think about the best charity to give it to but I always find one who loves it.

Xmas is coming up fast. I made a delivery last week with a Xmas "order" and it made me realise even more just how close it really is. If you can make toys or mini Xmas stockings then pleaseee do so. I delivered 300 the other day and only have about 70 left here though I do know a few women are knitting them and holding onto them til closer to Xmas which is great! So the total I need now is 4,700!  Now that is not so intimidating is it LOL 

We have had quite a few new people join us and had others donate wiil and material which is great. I have just updated the Donations on the website and it is now 87,776 which is a FANTASTIC total. Keep up the good work!!
