Ronald McDonald House Charity needs our help. I’m sure you are familiar with the great work that the Ronald McDonald House does providing housing for families who are going through a medical crisis with their children. They have 3 separate facilities that at any given night can house 67 families. Many of those families stay for months at a time, some even stay for years while their children are receiving treatment.
Every year around the holidays, they do a fun activity called “12 Days of Sharing”. For the 12 days leading up to Christmas, they surprise families with small gifts in their room. This year they are asking for 50 felt bags for one of the surprise gifts for the moms!
They’ve asked for our help to make them, and we are asking you!
Here is our proposal. You come to the shop and buy yarn for a felted bag. Go home, knit and felt it. Then come back to the shop with the finished bag and we’ll give you a $10 gift card to Darn Knit Anyway! You get to make a donation to this great cause and you get $10 to spend at your favorite LYS! It’s a win-win!
There is no specific bag requirement. Any felted bag is fine. Our requirements are only that the bags are handmade, felted and brand spanking new. Remember, these are extra special moms, so they need extra special bags!
They have asked for 50 of them and they want them by December 1st. (Deadline extended to December 11th) Let’s not let them down!
