Can You Help?

Does anyone know if there is an Australian organisation or collection point that accepts knitted items to send to Afghanistan? Our library WWL group usually send our things through Mahboba’s Promise, but she is again unable to accept them because of the cost of freight.

I have a large number of beanies, scarves, jumpers and smaller sized rugs that the group have knitted for that purpose.

Hope you can help!

  1. Hi Atholie. I have put this out on twitter. I’ll let you know if i get any responses. Good luck.

  2. Hi Mary-Helen
    Thanks for that. I’m not on Twitter anymore (- too much information). I’ve done a number of googles but can’t find anything. I didn’t think about Facebook – I’ll look there too.
    Thanks again.
    Atholie

  3. When you find somewhere, do please let me know as I also have clothes to send.

  4. Hi guys. Twitter only came up with Mahoba’s Promise, but also a suggestion to try the Australian Defence Forces. There is a US-based charity that sends things to Afghanistan: http://www.specialknittingforces.org Also, the same person suggested the CWA, but I’m not sure how much use that is.
    Hope this helps.

  5. Ooops – I didn’t check that link it appears not to be operating any longer. There’s also the Red Cross. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
