knit one give one
The knit one give one (KOGO) army knits garments for charity.
kogo supplies approximately 80 different organisations that fall into the following broad categories:
-:- Crisis accommodation
-:- Emergency relief
-:- Family support services
-:- Food distribution vans
-:- Government funded community support services
-:- Homelessness services
-:- Hospital social work departments
-:- Organisations dealing with children at risk
-:- Organisations helping refugees
-:- Outreach Missions eg Sacred Heart Mission
-:- Women's refuges
The seeds of kogo (knit one give one) were planted in July 2004. It was a particularly cold winter in Melbourne and we decided to get friends and family to direct their knitting energy towards making scarves for people who were experiencing homelessness. That year we knitted 180 scarves (with our own wool) which were distributed by the Emerald Hill Mission to those in need.
How to help!
There are suggested patterns on the website but please feel free to create whatever you would like - a great way to use up your stash of wool! We will find a deserving 'home' for any hand knit whether it be for baby, child or adult.
Finished garments can be dropped into one of the participating stores or posted to:
P.O. Box 2156
