#ShareTheWellness on #GivingTuesday

 

Have you ever…      

  Used yarn as therapy?  Knit to de-stress?  Crafted to keep calm?
Joined a knitting circle to feel part of a community?

Then you have experienced the wellness of knitting. 

On November 27, you can #ShareTheWellness and spread the impact Project Knitwell is making on people’s lives.   This #GivingTuesday, support Project Knitwell’s team of dedicated volunteers when you shop for yarn and tools.  Our generous sponsors, manufacturer Lion Brand, and local yarn shops, fibrespace in Alexandria and Looped Yarnworks in Washington DC, will donate a proportion of their profits to Project Knitwell.

Lion Brand Yarn will donate 10% of ALL online yarn purchases to Project Knitwell.

fibrespace in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia will donate 20% of all sales to Project Knitwell.

Looped Yarnworks in Washington, DC will donate 20% of all sales to Project Knitwell.

Shop.  Share. Give.

Share the gift of Wellness, Comfort, and Community with moms and dads of NICU babies, cancer patients, nurses, teens with emotional and mental health challenges, women returning from prison, those affected by homelessness, and many others.

Give the Gift of Giving

Join Project Knitwell at two Alternative Giving Fairs this December, in Takoma Park on December 1 and 9, and in Arlington on December 8.  Shoppers will have the chance to support both Project Knitwell’s work in hospital and community settings, and the work of other non-profits in our area.

Both fairs make it easy to share the gift of giving with those you love this holiday. Instead of choosing a gift, shoppers buy a specific service or item from a shopping list of urgent needs compiled by the non-profits, and can then, in turn, gift that donation to someone on their holiday shopping list. Both fairs are kid-friendly, and priced so that kids can participate.

We look forward to meeting you at the Fair:

  • Saturday, December 1, 12 pm – 4 pm
    20th Annual Takoma Park Alternative Gift Fair
    Takoma Park Presbyterian Church, 310 Tulip Avenue,
    Takoma Park, MD 20912
  • Sunday, December 9, 10 am – 2 pm
    Takoma Park Farmer’ s Market, Corner of Carroll Ave. and Laurel Ave., Takoma Park, MD 20912
  • Saturday, December 8, 10 am – 2 pm
    Gifts that Give Hope
    Arlington Science Focus School
    1501 N. Lincoln Street, Arlington VA 22201

And if you can’t join us in person, you can still join in the giving. Visit Alternative Gifts of Greater Washington and Gifts that Give Hope to purchase gifts online.
