Our Volunteers Are Awesome!

It's just one week since we launched 'Lily' - Love In the Language of Yarn.
Our first assignment is to help provide blankets for the Syrian refugees in Turkey.
As we are a small and new organisation we set a target of 100 blankets and put out a plea for knit or crocheted  8inch squares which will then be sewn together to form blankets. The response has been awesome! This week we have had :

 A donation of 12 x 100grm of knittin yarn.


10 completed blankets











150 knit and crocheted squares








 promises of squares from Austrailia, UK, Turkey, Germany and US  and 46 followers on Facebook. 

                          A Big Thankyou!

Your help is really appreciated.

'Lily' is supported by businesses and individuals in Turkey,Uk, Austrailia, US and Germany whether it be donations of yarn, Knitting and Crocheting or transportation of completed blankets to receiving agencies.
'Lily' has no paid employees.  All the good work is done on a strictly volunteer basis.
'Lily' wishes to thank all those private individuals and businesses which support us.  Without you, there would be no 'Lily' - Love In the Language of Yarn.  We work hard for the day when we are no longer needed to help keep Children warm.
