Thanks for your offer of assistance to this community project, we send out kits, (not just the pattern) to keep the national quality of control and our “duty of care” towards the breast cancer patient. Each kit has the pattern, 100% cotton and fiberfill. The Kit has headquarters details so please do not hesitate to contact us for any knitting queries in between (10:00 am – 04:00 pm).
Please do not distribute the pattern or photo copy the pattern, it is a registered pattern and we have the copy right on it. We want the national logo to always appear in pink. We have to keep track of the groups/individuals and the kits for with postage, packing and the 100% Cotton.

But you are the VIP of this organisation, so if you have not heard from us within a reasonable time, feel free to call us, particularly if you are waiting on more cotton to knit further prosthesis. We would love to hear from you.
We may say that we do not need any knitting at present because stock levels are high, however, we would love and appreciate any knitting that can be done for fundraising, such as for a street stall.
We are a non-profit organisation and all our funds are by donations, guest speaking spots by the founder and street stalls. All funds are used for postage and packaging to send to breast cancer survivors.
Donations are appreciated, we can buy more cotton, build more kits and support more women.
