It’s been heartbreaking to helplessly watch the devastating news of the Australian wildfires unfold.
A Facebook group has been formed and mobilizing crafters around the globe, providing direction on where help is most needed, patterns and updates. If you are interested in learning more and have a Facebook account, check out the Animal Rescue Craft Guild. I’m providing a couple of screenshots to help you find the page and to give you an idea of what’s needed.
Quoting from a Global news article:
Crafters across the globe are getting to work for a good cause to help koalas, joeys and other animals injured in the Australian wildfires
The Animal Rescue Craft Guild has banded together in support of the country’s wildlife, ferociously knitting and sewing mittens and pouches for animals affected by the disaster.
The group is also making nests for smaller animals, as well as wraps for bats and diapers for younger creatures separated from their mothers.
Thank you to Jackie Aldworth and Lisa Bruce for sharing this.
If you have trouble finding the patterns, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
