“67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day does not sleep and, our work goes on, says Carolyn Steyn, founder of this international movement.

“The need for blankets and warmth is now more important than ever before, see what the Knitwits across the country are doing, the knitting and crocheting continues and the organisation is welcoming blankets made with love to distribute to the less fortunate as winter approaches and warmth is badly needed.”

There are ambassadors across the country that can collect blankets or squares to distribute. 

Donations of wool are very welcome!
