Knit for Peace Christmas Cards

We love Knit for Peace. They use knitting in so many ways to help others in need. As they themselves say “Knit for Peace encourages women and men from different, often historically hostile communities to come together informally to knit (or sew or crochet). With a shared common goal, differences in race, religion or caste are irrelevant, and individuals come together to knit peacefully.”

They also find good homes for knitted items but finding vetted charities that work directly with those who would benefit from your knitted items so send them your knitting and they will make sure that it goes to a good home.

Another way to support them this year is to buy their knitting Christmas cards. All the proceeds go to the Knit in Peace fund, which helps them keep doing what they are doing and pays for the transport to send jumpers out. We love the designs, and you know that the money will go to a cause close to your heart.
