*Fundraiser For Hope* Yarny Treats

Postby j-j » Fri Feb 11, 2011 7:27 pm

This February, as I wait for the arrival of my baby #3 and get over the 4th birthday of my daughter, Hope and her beautiful family have been dealt some heartbreaking news.

Image

Hope, a little Wellington girl turning 4 in almost a week was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago. Since then she’s gone through countless painful and difficult procedures and earned 900 beads. Rachael (who took the stunning photos) summed it up when she wrote “In New Zealand, when a child is diagnosed with cancer, they start receiving beads. The beads are part of their story and recognise and honour a child’s bravery throughout their journey with child cancer. They are collected at each hospital visit, and for each treatment they receive on their journey” And yes, Hope, 2 years on from her first diagnosis has 900 beads.

Image

When all these beautiful photos were taken in October 2010, Hope had been in remission and had been treatment free for 5 weeks.

Image

This week though we all learned that Hope’s cancer has returned and is spreading – sadly this time the only treatment will be palliative. Hope’s family have been given a terribly short time frame to enjoy her. It’s devastating news for any family to have to try and come to terms with.

Image

And so this brings me to the giveaway. Wouldn’t we all like to do something to ensure that in the time Hope has remaining her family have to worry less about money and bills. Wouldn’t you like to help ease some financial pressure so that the family can spend as much quality time as possible together?

Image

So, I’ve put together a prize for anyone with an interest in yarn and knitting on behalf of the Hope Osborne Society. It includes:

Image

A handmade swift, carefully handcrafted by my husband. For more details on how to use/assemble see here http://justonewip.blogspot.com/2009/10/ ... wifts.html

Yarn -
2 x 50gms balls of Noro Kureyon, 100% wool, colour no 124 – Reds, purples and pinks.

2 x 100gms skeins of Jolly Jumbuck 4ply/fingering on the Zeus base (60% merino, 20% cashmere, 20% nylon) – colourway ‘Ancient Mariner’

1 x 100gms skein of Touch 4ply/fingering Pure NZ merino – in a lovely pastel combination of pink, purple, yellow, green and blue

2 sets of professionally made (not by me) stitch markers. These come in a beautifully made stitch marker holder.

A Work in Progress bag

Postage anywhere in the world

The value of this would be well over the $150NZD mark, and could be yours for the grand sum of $5NZD! Though of course you’re not limited to one entry!

Now, if you’re not into yarn and knitting but would like to help, feel free to give a donation directly to Hope’s account:

Hey, Just transferred $30 with LilyJackandMegsMum as reference. Not sure what it will show as it was over a couple of the boxes but you should be able to recognise it.

Thank you for doing this Julia. :grouphug:

You guys are amazing! And there have been some incredibly generous donations coming from Aussie's that have been touched by Hope's story - I've taken over $500 into my paypal account and the majority of that was international donations, not even giveaway entries!

And just to make the giveaway even better, Tash of Knitsch yarns has donated a delicious skein of Hazel Knits in 'Tulip'
