Knitting is now, not only an environmentally friendly, kitschy hobby, it’s also an activity that can assist those in need and raise awareness, about social in-justice and those living below the poverty line.
Wrap With Love inc was established in 1992, a charity that provides wraps and blankets to under privileged counties. Over the past 20 years these hardworking individuals have knitted over 300,000 wraps to over 75 countries.
With Millions of People around the world suffering from extreme cold, without adequate shelter and no electricity, the comfort of a woollen blanket is priceless and especially when there is love knitted in the stitches.
Wrap with love is a non profit organisation, run entirely on volunteers – their motto is,
‘Cold humanity is our concern, people caring about other people’
and that’s exactly what these amazing volunteers do… care about making the world that little bit warmer.
