Among the thousands of people who lost their homes as a result of Hurricane Harvey are children whose lives have been disrupted by the devastation. Join Jimmy Beans & Blue Sky Fibers initiative in giving back and knitting hope for these kiddos!
There are two ways to participate in this initiative. One is as simple as buying a Royal Petite Knit Kit. For every Knit Kit sold, Jimmy Beans and Blue Sky Fibers will donate $10 each to our friends at The Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP). The founder of the KIPP program has pledged that 100% of the donations will go directly to the kids, some of whom have been affected not once, but twice (think Hurricane Katrina) by the havoc wrought by these natural disasters.
The second way to that you can help is by knitting your Royal Petite animal; then, if desired, add a personalized message of encouragement & send it back to Jimmy Beans warehouse by October 31st.Jimmy Beans will mail all of the animals to KIPP Houston Public Schools. KIPP will then pair your project with a student who has been directly affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The goal is to raise funds for KIPP, deliver joy (and stuffed animals) to 800 kiddos, and show the world the power of a knitting needle!
Together we can show the power and love of our knitting community
