Knitting for Mandela Day - a loving family knits for Charity
Posted on July 18, 2014
Gaynor Echardt has been with Coffee capsules direct since the start of the company. “We are very proud to have such a loving and giving person as part of our Team,” says Judy Walter, Marketing Manager of the company. “To see what Gaynor and her family put together makes all of us very proud. They not only donated 67 minutes but an entire year to make so many people happy!” “It all started in 2012 when my father Pietie McKinnon was ill with cancer,” says Gaynor. “My family and I started knitting at his bedside. After he passed away we continued in his honor.” Each year a different person decides what the project for the next year is going to be. “Phia decided on the slipper socks last year,” explains Gaynor. This year her sister Leigh voted for baby blankets. “A nurse told me that it makes her so sad to see newborns leave the hospital without even a blanket to cover them,” says Leigh Pollio. “That is why we already started knitting for next year´s Mandela day – baby blankets with a hoodie to keep them warm.” We from Coffee capsules direct can only congratulate the entire family on all their efforts. The company with greatest pleasure, will be donating wool again for this year´s blankets! Gaynor, Leigh and Phia, you rock while knitting!
