The UN Children's Fund is calling on Kiwi knitters to get their needles clacking as part of a nationwide attempt to construct a giant baby blanket and raise awareness of AIDS in the developing world.
Knit or crochet at least one 20cm x 20cm square and send it to UNICEF in Wellington by 1 May. The squares will then be stitched together to form a blanket of 1,400 squares. The 1,400 squares represent the number of children under 15 years of age who contract HIV every day.
A giant baby blanket will be presented to MPs who are mothers at a fun public event outside Parliament on Mother's Day, Sunday 10 May at 3pm.
So get out the wool and needles and knit or crochet a square for a great cause, and attend the fun event at Parliament on Mother's Day!
