Support the Rwanda Knits Auctioncomments (0) October 22nd, 2008
From the Rwanda Knits website:
"Founded in 2003, the Rwanda Knits project provides hand-operated, American-made knitting machines plus technical and business training to low income women in Rwanda to enable them to earn a living through knitting. There are currently over 1,500 women who have learned to use the knitting machines in 17 different women's cooperatives across the country."
Now's your chance to support this great organization-- and to get your hands on some designer knitwear at the same time. Check out the fundraising auction right here. The starting bids are very reasonable, downright cheap even, when you consider that you're getting a hand knit or crocheted item designed by the likes of Nicky Epstein, Doris Chan and Drew Emborsky. The auctions end on October 26th, so be sure to get your bid in soon!
