Knitting for Food- April 11, 2021

Happy Earth Day

On April 11th, I spend the entire day crocheting hats and it was all for a great cause.    "Knit for Food" 12 hour knit-athon was created by Laura Nelkin. With the input, assistance and work of an amazing group of people, over $270,000 was raised to be donated to the following organizations:

World Central Kitchen

Meals on Wheels

Team No Kid Hungry

Feeding America 

It was a great day and I know that so much work went into organizing and running the day.   Thank you everyone for all you did.    There was a Zoom meeting for most of the day, great presentations and togetherness.   I know that the plan is to hold this event again next year (maybe March) and I'm ready to sign up.   

I  Zoomed with my donors during the day.. and everyone asked how I was holding up..fatigue?  Hand pain?   The thing is I felt pain, loads of energy..  that's what doing for others does for you!!!

Perhaps you want to join in next year to knit or make a donation.   This was so gratifying and up lifting and I will share info about 2022 when it comes available.    

What I finished:  

A special treat
