The Angel Network is calling all knitters to use their talent to help keep prem babies warm this winter by knitting tiny booties for charity.
Johannesburg, South Africa – Are you feeling the winter chill as much as us? If we can feel it, imagine a newborn prem baby born during the chilly months. The Angel Network is calling on anyone with the ability to knit, to help them keep prem babies warm this winter.
The charity is asking people to please knit little baby booties for them which they will deliver to hospitals across Johannesburg. The booties will be given to babies born prematurely or critically ill.
The Angel Network was started to give a hand up to orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa by assisting with food, clothing, housing and education. Today they support hundreds of individuals and charitable organisations, giving a better chance at life in South Africa.
Along with the bootie drive, they are also asking for tiny beanies. They have given potential donors three options to assist, for those who cannot knit but wish to get involved, they ask for you to purchase prem beanies and booties. For those who knit, to knit the beanies and booties and for those who are not in the Johannesburg area, to donate funds which will be used to purchase the requested items.
If you would like to get involved, you can contact the Angel Network via Facebook here.
