Dear All,

Whether you're a knitter or not - thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

I'm an independant knitwear designer, and if you have already followed me for a while, you'll know that each year, I run an advent calendar for knitters with part of the proceeds going to charity.

2017 has been a rough year in many ways, with countless people suffering from the effects of war, earthquakes, floods, hunger and diseases, and I know that there are many of you who want to reach out and support those who are in need.

That's why I've created this fundraiser for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) - a charity organization committed to bringing quality medical care to people in need regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. By travelling to places that are most affected by crisis, the doctors and their helpers take high personal risks to support the poorest on this planet.

My goal is to raise 10,000 USD to support them, and to make a start, I'm donating the first 1,000 USD.

Come on knitters - let's show the world that we can make a change!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at melanie (at) mairlynd (dot) de, or visit my Ravelry group .

Thank you so much for contributing and for reaching out to support those who need it most!



Hey Ihr,

ganz egal, ob Ihr strickt oder nicht - vielen herzlichen Dank, dass Ihr meine Spendenaktion besucht!

Ich bin eine selbständige Strickdesignerin, und wenn Ihr mir schon länger folgt, kennt Ihr vielleicht den Adventskalender für Stricker, den ich jedes Jahr anbiete. Einen Teil des Erlöses spende ich immer an eine wohltätige Aktion. 

2017 war auf viele verschiedene Arten ein hartes Jahr - unzählige Menschen leiden unter den Folgen von Krieg, Erdbeben, Überflutungen, Hunger und Krankheit. Ich weiß, dass viele von Euch gerne etwas tun würden, um Menschen, die Hilfe brauchen, zu unterstützen.

Deshalb habe ich diese Spendenaktion für Ärzte ohne Grenzen ins Leben gerufen, weil sie auf heldenhafte Weise weltweit arbeiten, um Menschen zu helfen und Not zu lindern.

Mein Ziel ist es, 10.000 USD zu sammeln, und um einen guten Anfang zu machen, spende ich selbst die ersten 1.000 USD.

Auf geht's, Strickcommunity - lasst uns der Welt zeigen, dass wir etwas bewirken können!

Falls Ihr Fragen habt, kontaktiert mich gerne unter melanie (at) mairlynd (dot) de, oder schaut in meiner Ravelry Gruppe vorbei.

Danke, dass Ihr diese Aktion unterstützt!

I can't express how grateful I am for each and every donation - it really shows me (once again) what a great and supportive community knitters are. There couldn't be a better gift for me this Christmas!

I hope you and yours are spending peaceful holidays, and that you'll have a wonderful start into 2018, which is only a few days from today on.

There's so many on this planet who are living under terrible circumstances, and I'm really glad to be able to support Doctors Without Borders, who are doing an outstanding job. Their courage saves lives!

Please keep sharing this fundraiser on your social media! Let your friends know about it - maybe they'll also be happy to contribute.

I'm saying Thank You! from the bottom of my heart!
