Countdown to Knitmas, Day 11!

Hi guys! Today I just wanted to write a quick post to tell you about some worthy charities that could use your help during the colder months! There are so many people less fortunate than us, and it's important to remember them, this time of year especially! So here are a couple of charities that you can knit for:

Stitches from the Heart
Stitches collects knitted and crocheted baby items for hospitals all over the country. Check out their website to find out more!

Afghans for Afghans
Afghans for Afghans sends handknit and crocheted blankets, sweaters, mittens, etc to bring warmth to the beleaguered people of Afghanistan.

Warm up America
Warm up America distributes handmade items to tons of charitable organizations around the nation, including homeless shelters, battered women's shelters, children's hospitals, and other people in need. This organization is great because they accept blanket squares and join them together, so you don't have to knit a whole blanket.

There are a ton more organizations out there that could use your help, here's a link to a whole list. How easy is it to knit up a quick preemie hat or afghan square? I love knitting because there is such a large community of people that can do so much good! Thanks for reading this, and I hope I inspired you to do some charity knitting!
