Hi there

This is my first post after lurking for a while, but thought some of you (probably UK-based) knitters might be interested in the 'Knit One Save One' appeal for Save the Children.

They are looking for people to knit hats for newborn babies in developing countries to help save them from hypothermia and pneumonia, which kills 2 million children each year. They need to reach a total of 50,000 hats by October 21st and are currently about halfway to the target. The appeal is also designed to raise awareness of the vulnerability of babies to these diseases, and the 'Knit-kit' on the Save the Children website also includes a tag you can attach to the finished hat to send a message to politicians.

Full details are on the Save the Children website, as well as some very cute photos of babies wearing their new hats!:

Thanks for reading

There's a place for charity stuff on Craftster called crafting for good not evil.
