Learn, Knit, Give

Inspired by the event that started it all, the Tucson contingent of Help A Mother Out organized a Learn-to-Knit Party Fundraiser for the Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona.

On a warm May day in Tucson (most of them are) a motley, but enthusiastic group gathered to try their hand at this time honored craft. Our regional non-profit hospital, Tucson Medical Center, provided not only a fine setting, but also the yarn and needles meaning all donations went to the Diaper Bank.

Along with enough donations to purchase 2,700 size 4 diapers, a whole bunch of awareness, ideas and volunteers for future events were raised as a result of this event.
In the works as a direct result of this event:

A learn-to-crochet party for Fall
A karaoke party (one pack of diapers to enter, another if you refuse to sing)
Diaper drives at local schools and university departments
Diaper drive at Cinema La Placita

Along with TMC’s support, the following generously supplied fabulous door prizes:
Velvet Glass
Kiwi Knitting
Sparkle and Charm
Hillary Rosenfeld LMT
Erin Debenport

Many thanks all!
