Believe in Kindness, Inc.'s Fundraiser:

Beanies for Pediatric Cancer Patients

Believe in Kindness, Inc.'s Photo

THE STORY:

"Knitting Stories" is a project that connects young generations with women artisans knitting in Huaraz, in the Peruvian Sierra, and finally connects them all with children in cancer treatment in a large hospital in Lima, Peru. The teenagers take crochet classes and learn to knit a cheerful accessory (an emoji) to be applied to a beanie that will be woven by the talented artisans of the Peruvian highlands. The funds raised by the knitting class and the emoji decorations are sent to the artisan center through the “Mision Huascaran” Foundation, placing an order (providing these women with a job and generating progress for their community) for the making of beanies. The next stage of which is the application of the emoji made by teenagers. Lastly, the hats knit by the artisan women with the emoji knit by the teenagers will be donated to pediatric cancer patients at INEN, a large public hospital in Lima, Peru through “Fundación Magia.” In this way, it supports “Misión Huascaran” with its project to promote the self-sustainable development of this area of Huaraz, each hat being a collaboration of love. The final order of hats is given to “Fundación Magia”, who is responsible for improving the living conditions and treatment of underprivileged pediatric patients with cancer. In this way, we collaborate with giving love and shelter to the heads of these patients. The children of “Fundación Magia” will then write two notes of gratitude, one for the artisan who wove the hat and another for the teenager who wove the emoji. Knitting stories is an adventure that connects stories with hope. The donations collected through this fundraiser will be used to buy more hats from the Women in Peru to give to the children in the hospital.
