BENEFITING: KREMPELS CENTER
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2015
We're doing it again! Knitting another marathon to raise money for a good cause.
Why would we take on this challenge again? Well, we’re a group of knitters from all around the world who are also fans of professional road cycling, and admirers of cyclist Ted King, in particular. Ted is a very active supporter of the Krempels Center, so we are making this blanket to raise money for the Krempels Center in his honor.
The Krempels Center, located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with brain injury from trauma, tumor or stroke. The Center offers programs that engage members in meaningful and productive experiences and provides ongoing support and resources to those impacted by brain injury. In addition, the organization’s community outreach initiative provides education to the public about brain injury and brain injury prevention. Most Krempels Center services are provided free of charge.

This blanket is an excellent metaphor for the Krempels Center:
• A community of people is working together.
• Each piece is unique.
• These unique parts combine to make something spectacular.
The colors of this blanket are inspired by nature: mushroom, sand, seafoam, etc. Knit in soft, squishy, washable wool, so you don’t have to be afraid to use it. We want you to! snuggle with your sweetie. Wrap it around the shoulders of someone you love. Cozy up with it on your couch with some hot chocolate. Gift it to a friend to let them know you love them. This blanket is made to be used and loved for many years.
How can this beautiful blanket be yours? Simply make a donation to the Krempels Center though this site and we’ll enter you into a “thank you” drawing for the blanket.
Donations of any amount are gratefully accepted. Donations up to $10 (US) will earn you an entry into the drawing to win the blanket. Each multiple of $10 earns you another entry (so $20 gets you two entries, $30 gets you three entries, etc.). The winner will be chosen by a random drawing on October 17, 2014 and the winner will be notified by email. 100% of all donations go directly to the Krempels Center. To be eligible for the drawing, your donation must be made before October 15, 2015.
