As part of our ongoing work to be better allies, we are posting a list of resources to help support the Black Lives Matter movement and learn along with others, how to be anti-racist.  

We are also going to be offering opportunities to donate to the various organizations listed below in resources as we think taking action is essential in amplifying the voices of those that need to be heard.  Every two weeks, throughout the summer, we will be offering a prize pack of curated yarns, project bags, knitting tools and notions that will be given away to one lucky donor.  Every donation of $5 will give you one entry into the drawing for the gift basket.  Every donation received will go directly to the organization listed for that prize pack.  You can donate by clicking the PayPal Donation button below.  We will be listing the prize packs and donation deadlines on this page as well as on social media.  If you can’t donate, we understand, as times are very difficult, but we would love some help sharing our message and encourage you to share our posts with friends and followers on social media.  We so appreciate your support for the very important work that needs to be done. This giveaway collection will be available to US residents.

This is just a very small list of resources to get started on a journey to work towards justice for all.  We will continue to add to and update our resource pages.  We encourage you to read, listen to and explore as many resources out there as you can.  Donate to one or some of the impactful organizations if you can.  Stand in the Gap and be an ally.
