SIBOL – Sunshine International Blankets of Love

By A Guest Writer – 2 Comments

A Guest Post by Sue M.

SIBOL is an online knitting and crocheting group with members all across the world. We make ‘Sunshine Blankets’ out of knitted and crocheted squares for the elderly in the UK.

The elderly are sometimes forgotten about often sitting lonely in nursing homes and hospitals as families tend to have very busy lives with limited time to visit. We are hoping that a gift of a handmade blanket will be like ‘a ray of sunshine’ when an elderly person receives one. Sending love and warmth knowing that someone cares about them and that the blanket will bring a smile to their face!

‘Sunshine Blankets’ are to be donated to nursing homes, hospitals and charities in the UK.

If you would like to learn more, or get involved in making squares please visit the SIBOL blog .

    This is a great post, Sue! I’m Scottish and have been looking for a crochet/knitting charity. This sounds like a really worthwhile cause and I am going to check out the blog. Thanks for posting about this.

    Love the charitable crocheters! I read somewhere (so I might have the numbers wrong) that 90 percent of the items most crocheters make are given away as gifts and to charity.
