If you’ve been following my exploits for some time now, I’m sure it’s pretty obvious, that I’m a bit of a ‘how can we help’ fiend? I’ve often found myself knee deep in knitted items, sorting out, bagging up and horror of all horrors – sewing seams 😱 To be fair, my long suffering knitting friends are usually roped in somewhere along the line too 💗 💗 💗
In the past getting a charity knitting and crochet campaign off the ground was relatively easy. I had the shop and a lovely customer base, who spread the word high and low. Once I’d got everything together and had a plan in place, I knew I could rely on everyone to champion the latest collection. Whatever the cause, the response was always fantastic and every time, I was honestly blown away with the amount of work everyone put in.
This time round, there’s no shop. There is a magazine, so you’d assume it would be much, much easier, but it’s not due for publication until next month 😦
The charity in question, is an Irish one and they’re in need of a long list of things, woolly and not so woolly.
So here in lies a dilemma and I’d love to hear your thoughts?
How do we gauge interest?
How do we spread the word?
How do we collect the items and where are we going to put the drop off points?
It can only go ahead with your help, so I’m looking forward to hearing all of your ideas.
