Knitted Knockers and other charity items

Does anyone knit / crochet specifically for various charity projects?

I’ve made loads of Innocent Smoothie hats, and a few blankets for PDSA/ RSPCA.

I’m on a waiting list to start knitting woollen boobs for mastectomy women.

I’m not fast/good enough yet, so my only donations are clothing & other items to charity shops!

I’d love to see the creations you donated. Any pics?

At my former workplace we held annual Christmas Sales with all proceeds going to WaterAid.

That’s amazing!

I knit hats for my local homeless shelter, it’s not a ton, but figure every little bit helps. It’s a basic 2x2 rib with a fold up cuff, it gets cold here in the Midwest.

Hi there, in my area, grocery delivery during the pandemic meant I made a sizeable collection of plastic bags AGAIN after my efforts to stop using them precovid. Instead of tossing them, I am making plarn to crochet sleeping mats for the homeless. As well, I know there will be a lot of yarn scraps, so I will make knitted winter gear as well for the homeless.
