In the early life of this blog I posted a Take Action post for people who are crafty, 'Knit for a Cause'. In that post I listed a whole bunch of organisations and groups that allow people to use their hobby and knitting skills for a good cause.
One of the of the organisations that I listed was Knit One Give One(kogo). I had forgotten all about my earlier post (it was almost three years ago) until this week when I did my stint on the SoupBus. It was a freezing cold night and for my first time this year I had a number of SoupBus customers that were in need of some winter woolies such as gloves and hats. We usually have a bit of a supply on the bus for nights like this and I went into the little store room on the bus to see what I could find, and what do you know, tubs and tubs full of scarves, beanies and gloves all with little kogo tags. These knitted items were gratefully accepted and put to great use.
Thank you to all of those busy knitters out there.
