67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day

67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day is preparing for their annual Secret Scarf Mission, fondly known as the #SSS. KnitWits for Madiba around the country have been knitting and crocheting beautiful scarves to distribute on the 9th July.

Now in its 6th year, this Nationwide initiative has proved to be hugely successful, whereby thousands of scarves are draped around trees and poles and hang resplendent for the taking, by passersby in need. A note is attached to each scarf – ‘I am not lost, if you are cold and need me, please take me’

These handmade scarves are made with love, to keep people warm in Winter and are always distributed in July in celebration of Nelson Mandela’s birthday.

Anyone is welcome to assist at the various venues in tying the scarves to trees and poles. There is still some time to make and donate scarves and a local Ambassador can be contacted via the 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day website – www.67blankets.co.za
