This Sunday, 30th January, the Etsy Greek Street Team members are grabbing their needles and hooks and are inviting other knitters at Kangaroo craft store to make caps for the "Caps for Good” campaign!Research shows that 50 percent of the 4 million newborn deaths that occur each year could be prevented if mothers and children in poor countries had access to a simple package of health measures। This package includes antibiotics to fight infections, immunizations, training for skilled birth attendants, education on breastfeeding and hygiene, and basic care such as keeping a baby warm by covering the head and carrying the baby skin-to-skin. America’s leaders could save millions of newborns by increasing international assistance for programs that offer these inexpensive life-saving tools. Do you want to be part of it and help us? There are 2 ways. a) If you are located near Athens come join us, even if you don't know how to knit. b) Support our cause visit these lovely shops which are donating a percentage of the sales: Psyboom, Antigoni, Creationsbyeve,ERGANIweaving, Stephmel, FishesmakeWishes,Blueroompottery, Blueroombijoux, Feelwhatifelt, Nafsika, Awitch, LepetitFoyer, Giftforever, Sivylla,Peachypop, oneperfectday,Nakedtile
"Caps for Good” is a grassroots initiative of the global humanitarian organization Save the Children and the "Warm Up America Foundation". The project seeks to engage knitters and crocheters to take action for the 4 million babies who die each year within the first month of life in poor countries.
