Give a craft give a donation

This blog post is a little different to all my other posts . This one is to highlight the plight of a  pregnant lady in Kenya who was rushed to hospital with complications she sadly lost her baby, she was 31 weeks along. Since then she as been stuck in hospital unable to leave until her hospital bill is paid


A fellow blogger, and where I read this story is trying to raise funds to help this woman. Read her story here. http://snapthatpenny.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/a-sad-story.html The situation of her circumstances and the reason im setting up this appeal is to help this lady pay her bill so she can go home, to grieve for her lost child. This lady must be so fed up and depressed.


I would like to raise some cash to do this and I need your help me and  Penny have donated but we need more funds and your help. so im organising "give a craft give a donation" I want people to send some thing for fun and donate a little to (PLEAiSE NOTE ITEMS CAN BE SENT UP TO TWO WEEKS AFTER THE 20TH OR LATER ) Here's how it works; check out the cool poster my daughter designed  below for details.





Have access to a PayPal account to make a donation ( this can be sent directly) by emailing penny at kerichojoy@gmail.com ( please note donations are voluntary)

Lastly there will be a giveaway. All people who participate  will go in to a draw to win this knitting book and this bag of yarn and patten book.This will be announced at a later date.


Deadline to enter  for the "give a  craft" will be 20th feb this is so I can let every one know which blogger they are to be paired with ( the quicker everyone is paired, the quicker the  crafts can be sent.


If you would like to take part and I really need has many people as possible leave a comment below indicating this. And lastly thank you ever so much ♡♥♡

  2. Joy, this is a great idea!! I don't have a blog, can I still participate in the craft swap? If not, I do understand and want to still make a contribution through paypal.

  4. Hi jabbott, I sent a contribution to Joyful for "give a craft" and to help the mother in Kenya. If this means I am in a drawing, and should I be the winner, you may give the award to anyone who enjoys the knitting hobby. Your kindness in organizing all this will surely be rewarded. God bless. Best regards, John
