Guardian Angel Program

Knitters take note. Your skills are needed to help World Vision and Guardian Pharmacies deliver winter woollies to needy children worldwide.
The Guardian Angel program encourages Australians to knit as many baby garments as they can during June, July and August. Free pattern books for woollies of all sorts, including jumpers, leggings, cuddly toys and hats are available from Guardian Pharmacies across Australia.

World Vision will ensure every knitted item returned to a Guardian Pharmacy reaches a needy child in a developing country. Last year’s program saw 120,000 garments made for children in need, and organisers hope to beat that tally this year.

    What if you live in Ontario Canada and there’s no Guardian Pharmacys? I have knitted a set and am planning to knit more. Where can I take them? Does anyone have this information?

    Why not have a look through Charity Village? It’s a Canadian site listing opportunities in the non-profit sector. I’m sure you could find a group who’d be interested in your skills that is more conveniently located than a small group of Australian pharmacies.
    Keep up the good work!
