Enjoy good company and coffee while making beautiful and practical items for ladies in need.We are passionate about bringing warmth to women affected by poverty and prostitution.
• The PRICELESS PROJECT (please hand items in by: October 13, 2013)
Knit and crochet items for ladies on the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. A lot of these women are affected by violence, sexual exploitation and/ or poverty. We want to show the exploited that they are valuable and priceless to us.
Good items to donate: mittens, gloves, socks, toques, short scarves (some women are exposed to a lot of violence and are concerned about getting strangulated with long scarves).
Mittens and gloves seemto be needed most.
• The new PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT FUNDRAISER (please hand items in by: December 1, 2013)
Knit and crochet items to be sold at a Christmas craft fair (and possibly other sales locations). The proceeds will go 100% to the charity "Servants Anonymous Foundation" in Vancouver. This is a relatively small charity helping young women who have been forced and trapped into sexual exploitation to rebuild their lives. The programs are designed so the ladies become part of a community and gain life and job skills. Servants anonymous provides also provides them with safe housing. What I like about this charity is the great personal commitment of the people working there.
Please make sure you do not violate copyrights for patterns not allowing items to be sold.
Goal: 80 - 100 items by December 1
Good items to donate: perfect Christmas gifts like cute kids clothing, baby booties, funny or elegant items for adults
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
