Each Saturday I focus on a different artist that I admire. From potters to painters, chefs to collectors, seamstress to songwriters, lifestyle to lovers... anyone who set the paintbrush, pastry brush, hands and heart on fire to create.
Those who inspire art to flow where it may.
When I was in California in December my cousin, sister in law and I went out for dinner in Chico. While there we saw a young woman wearing a wonderful large and interesting scarf.
We asked about it and found out that the scarf was made by KOMPASSIONKNIT, a non profit organzation creating handmade scarves to help fight against human trafficking.
Lindsey and Brooke are the two young women creating these "arm knit" scarves.
Wear and Share compassion.
"KompassionKnit makes beautiful hand knit cowls in a variety of colors. They are made from soft acrylic blend yarn in an airy pattern that keeps you warm.
We have partnered with Nvader an organization based out of New Zealand who works world wide to not only rescue women and children from human trafficking, they also work with local government, train the local law enforcement, work to prosecute those responsible and bring justice to those affected." via KompassionKnit
Each scarf is $25 and comes in a variety of colors, just say the word and they will custom make one for you. Proceeds from every scarf sold goes to the cause. Help them fight injustice.
Feel free to share.
