Donate your free time for worthy cause

WITH nationwide lockdown in full force, why not use your free time to give back to the community?

The Express is partnering with non-profit organisation Kindness like Confetti PE to help collect knitted items for various projects.

Komani-Karoo Express readers are requested to come on board and help to knit or crochet during your free time . . . and get the children on board as well. You will not only be teaching them a valuable skill, but also a valuable life lesson on giving back to the community.

Send us your photos

Send us photos of yourself or your child (or husband) knitting that beanie, scarf or little block to make up a blanket. You can e-mail photos to tanya.vanzyl@media24.com or you can post it on our Facebook page.

Kindness Like Confetti

The PE branch of the Johannesburg-based NPO, Kindness Like Confetti, has been running in PE since February 2019.

“We run various ongoing projects throughout the year,” said Margi Newton, from Kindness Like Confetti PE.

Their knitting/crochet project includes the creation of the following items:

  • Beanies – handed out to a cancer drive, homeless people, old age homes and prem- and newborn babies;
  • Baby booties, knitted teddies and blankets;
  • Jerseys – given to children in children’s homes and impoverished areas;
  • Knee blankets – given to the aged and to a cancer drive;
  • Scarves and gloves – handed out to aged and shelters for the homeless;
  • ‘Twiddle Muffs’ – for dementia patients at old age homes.

“We have patterns for all of the above, but we welcome items made by knitters and crocheters using their own tried and trusted patterns,” Newton said.

Owing to the lockdown, they are requesting that all completed items be kept at home until they can be either collected or taken to drop-off points.

So why not use your free time to knit or crochet items needed by the organisation? You can help make a difference by donating your time.
