Charity Cozy Fall MAL
These 20 square crochet patterns were originally published as part of the Charity Cozy Fall MAL I hosted with Noorain from Noor’s Knits as a fun way to make a cozy blanket together and give back to charities at the same time.
How to Give Back
With this event, we didn’t just want to help you create the coziest fall blankets but we wanted to give back.
Both Noorain and I have had loved ones affected by childhood cancer so we decided to organize this event as a means to give back where it’s most needed. A portion of proceeds from this event were donated to Cure Childhood Cancer.
About Cure Childhood Cancer
Cure Childhood Cancer’s mission is to help fund research for childhood cancer and support the kids and their families going through these tough times. From meals and counseling to financial assistance, CURE is committed to walking alongside families throughout their cancer journey. You can find more information over on their website here.
50% of every bundle purchase will be donated to the charity.
Gift your Blankets
We all love to knit more items than we can use. If you don’t have a particular person in mind for your blanket we want to encourage you to donate it to people in need.
