It’s time to get those knitting needles out, the Premmie Knitting Club 2019 appeal is now live!
Last year, the PKC tribe knitted thousands of wee knits for the NICU and this year we’re hoping to do the same.
You’ll notice a few changes this year, the main one being that we’re encouraging you to choose where you send your knitting to.
The 2019 PKC Appeal
Knit for the NICU using your own stuff or buy a KidSet kit
Take photos and send them to PKC to share!
Donate direct to PKC or your closet NICU
I’m looking forward to seeing all your photos, hearing from everyone and donating lots of amazing and helpful knits to the wee bubs in the NICU.
In May 2018, the Premmie Knitting Club appeared on Newshub explaining why the Well Foundation needs knits for the wee preemies in the NICU.
It was fantastic to be part of such a cool story and the response has been incredible. So many awesome people have reached out offering their support, from knitting to donating wool and much more. THANK YOU!
If you aren’t interested in learning to knit but want to support, you can donate via Givealittle. We donate the money from Givealittle to the Well Foundation who are helping the Waitakere Hospital Special Care Baby Unit build more rooms so families can stay together.
This will mean families -particularly mums with premature babies - can stay together in hospital and bond during a very vulnerable time in their lives. The foundation’s aim is to build six new rooms (from 12 to 18) so families can stay close to their baby and create a welcoming family-centred environment: designed around mums and bubs to support rest and recovery, and family bonding.
