Yesterday, World Kidney Day, John and I visited the Royal Free Hospital and handed over the 14 blankets. As you can see from the photos we had a lovely chat with Thelma, the Ward Manager and other nurses. They loved the blankets! Thelma was very appreciative and promised to distribute the blankets to the dialysis patients who need it most.
She asked me to thank all you lovely people for making the hexagons and being part of Crochet For Kidneys Part 2.
I do hope that the recipients will find the time to join the Crochet For Kidneys Facebook group so that we can all “meet” each other!
With Crochet For Kidneys Part 1 and Part 2 now over, I know a lot of you are wondering when Part 3 will kick off. Crocheters love to crochet and we love to share our crochet so it’s only natural that you want to be part of more charity projects. I love that about you all! You’ll have to wait a couple of months for Part 3 though. Crochet For Kidneys Part 3 won’t kick off until September 2014, but dont let that stop you from crocheting for charity.
The Starting Chain blog made a list of ten US Charities that need crocheted items which you can read here and as a follow-up on that post, they listed nine charities in the UK, Canada and Australia that also need crocheted items here. If your hands are itching to put hook to yarn for a good cause, I’m sure you’ll be able to find the perfect charity project in amongst the 19 charities listed in these two articles.
One final thank you to everyone who contributed a hexagon. I, the nurses at Royal Free Hospital and of course the 14 dialysis patient really, really, really appreciate all you have done.
Blessings to each and every one of you.
