Knitting, ILY

Knitting, ILY is a nonprofit organization started by a group of teens hoping to make a difference. Our mission is to connect with vulnerable populations in need, such as children in hospitals, the elderly, and animals in shelters, and provide them with handmade, knitted projects. It is our belief that our handmade blankets and handwritten letters of support can help connect these often isolated communities and help people to feel loved more than mere donations ever could. One stitch at a time, we aim to make a difference with these knitted projects, made carefully with care and love.

Donated money will go toward knitting supplies for our volunteers to make carefully knitted projects for the multitude of charities we will donate to, as well as store bought blankets for charities that accept it. Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated!
