Since our founding in June 2006, we have delivered requested items to more than 150,412 people living in communities across the United States and 80 countries around the world.
This work is possible thanks to thousands of individuals who create the items independently and in groups called Peace Pods; more than 4,024 volunteer delivery partners; and hundreds of financial supporters just like YOU!
Peace Pods have “sprouted” in a variety of settings: libraries, churches, synagogues, community centers, and private homes.
Peace Pods are groups of knitters and crocheters who actively support the work and mission of Knitting4Peace.
Delivering our items is an experience that can be powerful beyond description, and will change your perspective on the world.
Knitting4Peace harnesses the power of love through compassionate creative action that invites, involves, and serves all women, children, and families in our own communities and countries around the world.
Knitting4Peace is a grass-roots organization dedicated to crafting hope, healing & peace one stitch at a time through non-violent compassionate action. We are committed to the well-being of women, children, and families we may never meet; we plant seeds of hope for a future we will never see.
We respond to need in the communities we serve. These items are frequently requested by those who receive them.
Our widespread community also includes thousands of women, children, and families in local and global areas of conflict who receive our items of hope, healing, and peace.
We welcome any one and every one interested in crafting peace & justice through non-violent compassionate action. You can join us by knitting, crocheting, weaving, or quilting on your own.
We publish a newsletter once a month, packed with news stories that we are inspired to share with you.
