"a volunteer organisation. We aim to provide a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through the provision of new home made patchwork quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets, and give volunteers across to UK the opportunity to contribute to their local community."
I think its a lovely idea. Wish I was quicker at making things.
I know there are other organisations who do similar things like Children in Distress who do similar for children in Eastern Europe
"The Charity is dedicated to helping suffering children in the Balkans and Eastern Europe. We work with the sick, the incurably and terminally ill, those with HIV AIDS or Autistic Spectrum Disorders, the physically handicapped and those who face a daily challenge for life as result of accident, infection, genetic or birth defects, those who daily race discrimination or religious persecution , the socially excluded, the desperate and disadvantaged children and families, the poorest of the poor."
CID have a yarn shop too "
You can buy all types of yarn and crochet cotton etc at bargain prices (look under the heading 'Bargains' for the best buys). There is a 'Garage Sale' once a week - keep an eye out for it, yarn can be bought as cheap as 23p per ball!
I hope you enjoy looking through the different yarns and I would welcome your feedback on it. The yarns are shipped to you directly from Turkey (if you buy as a group, please don't be put off by the shipping costs - just add the shipping costs to your purchases and you will see that even with shipping you have still got a bargain and helped Children in Distress whilst buying it!)"
If anyone knows of other organisations I would be interested.
