Crocheting gifts for a good cause is a great use of your stitching skills. It puts a smile on someone’s face to receive a handcrafted item. It comforts someone in their time of need. And it feels really good for a crafter to know that this thing that they love doing is offering that to someone. You heal yourself by stitching to heal someone else. Existem muitos, many options for great organizations through which you can crochet for charity. I thought I’d let you know about a new one called the Purple Stitch Project, which provides hand crafted gifts to children epilepsy and other seizure disorders.

The Purple Stitch Project

O site for this project explains: “Roxo Ponto Projeto (PSP) is a web-based charitable organization to benefit babies, children and teens with epilepsy.

There are three main goals of the project:

  • Fornecer presentes artesanais para crianças com distúrbios convulsivos
  • Aumentar a conscientização sobre a epilepsia
  • Arrecadar dinheiro para apoiar bolsas de investigação e programas de epilepsia

Vickie Howell

O ponto projeto roxo foi lançado pela Vickie Howell, o tricô e crochê designer que você pode saber a partir de seus padrões, livros, Blog, oficinas e / ou Sheep(ish) linha de fios. Vickie começou PSP porque epilepsia infantil é uma condição que está perto de seu coração. Em 2011 seu filho mais novo foi diagnosticado com epilepsia. Seu filho está ficando mais forte e melhor a cada dia, mas tem sido uma montanha-russa para cima e para baixo tentando lidar com o seu diagnóstico. Devido a esta situação, Vickie conheci muitas outras crianças que estavam lidando com distúrbios convulsivos e ela queria ser capaz de fazer alguma coisa para trazer um sorriso a seus dias difíceis. Assim nasceu o projeto.

Como você pode ajudar

The Purple Stitch Project is accepting donations of knit, crocheted and hand-sewn gifts for children with epilepsy and other seizure disorders. They have teamed up with Craftsy to offer more than one dozen free patterns for handmade gifts (include a pattern for the crocheted purple ninja that you see above). You can use the free patterns to make gifts for children with epilepsy. You can give the items to someone you know who has a condition or send it to the Purple Stitch Project to be distributed to a child with a seizure disorder.

Here are some additional ways that you can help the Purple Stitch Project:

  • Give hearts on Craftsy. “Craftsy has generously offered to donate $1 for every 10 “heart” heart Crochet Gifts for Kids with Epilepsy (Purple Stitch Project) clicks a Purple Stitch Project item gets. Proceeds will be distributed to local and national Epilepsy programs!”
  • Upload your own finished item to Craftsy and try to get hearts for it as well.
  • Donate your own pattern design to be offered as a free download through Craftsy for project participants to use.
  • Espalhe a palavra. Blog about this, share this post on social media sites, let others know!

In the near future you’ll also have some other options:

  • Participate in the online auction; celebrity designers are donating garments and toys for the auction which happens later this summer.
  • Donate money; after PSP gets its nonprofit status they’ll be able to accept monetary donations.
