The project and ebook were coordinated by Tin Can Knits. Check out the designs now!
For each $18 ebook sold, $16.80 USD is donated to the Against Malaria Foundation (the remainder is made up of Paypal and Ravelry fees). Each ebook purchased will help purchase nets that keep people safe. What do you need to do? Just buy the book and get knitting!
As designers, we are constantly inspired and impressed by the knitting community. Our work goes out into the world and passes through so many hands, and in this we saw an opportunity to contribute.
UPDATE April 11 2017 - We've already donated $40,446 USD! This buys 16,178 nets, protecting 29,000 people which is the entire population of 50-60 villages!
