Our Charity Work

Silver has always been one to give back to charities.  It has been ingrained in her since she was a little tyke.  It wasn't until her grandmother passed away from ovarian cancer a few years back, that she started donating her knitting time even more.  It was a dying request from her Grandma M. that she share her hand-knit items with those that are less fortunate in their lives. 


In that spirit, we here at Silver's Knitted Treats try to give back as much as we can to the communities around us.  Over the years we have donated money and prizes to many different charity gaming marathons that help fight cancer in ANY form.

 

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We have decided that October will be our 2nd Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Drive.  This year, we will include hats & scarves as well as different washcloths in pink in this drive.  This is a major change, as we know there were many people who have asked for hats & scarves and worn them proudly.  We are offering several options this year, so make sure you check the shop and the page we have created for this drive!  Spread the word on any social medium that you can.  We'd be most appreciative!

 
 
 

This year we also had a charity drive for the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation in honor of Mr. Satoru Iwata, the CEO and President of Nintendo, who passed away from this disease. We raised $140 and hope to raise more next July!

 
 
 

Silver also donates many hats & scarves to local oncology wings in her area.  Any hats knit during the current year that she doesn't sell will be donated on January 1st of the next year.  We will be posting pictures of those donated every year, and including pictures of the donation itself.  :)
