In collaboration with CKDU's Homelessness Marathon, the 13-hour national radio program on poverty in Canada we will be having a KNIT-A-THON!February 23, 2009 from 7 PM- 8 AM
At St. Mathew's United Church on Barrington
We will be set up in the church hall with the along with the rad folks from CKDU who will be broadcasting live at 5 am!
The knit-a-thon is a fundraiser for the Out Of the Cold Emergency Winter Shelter in Halifax, which is an emergency shelter organized by a coalition of non-profits throughout HRM dedicated to provide shelter to individuals who are not able to access the current shelter system.
Along with raising funds, we will also be knitting scarves, hats and mittens for the shelter. We encourage knitters to find sponsors for each hour they knit (please see attached form). But don't worry, you don't have to knit all night!
If you have never knitted before this is the perfect opportunity to learn, we will have yarn, needles and skill sharing. Hot food and hot drinks will be provided to keep you going!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
