I am trying to raise money for yarn to be used to knit cuddly blankets for abandoned cats in shelters.

Hello :)
Did you know that on petfinder.com alone there are nearly 400,000 homeless cats waiting to be adopted? Imagine how many there are in total? Thanks to the mostly volunteer run shelters throughout the country, these cats are getting rescued and taken care of.

Still, for the many who get adopted, there are always those left behind, and in order to make their environment as home-like as possible, I knit and donate cuddly blankets for them to sleep on.

In fact, the lead volunteer of an animal shelter in my area where i have previously donated hand-knit blankets has mentioned to me more than once how she likes to send the adopted cats home with their blankets to make their transition less stressful by keeping something familiar with them. This makes perfect sense to me.

I knit these blankets from 100% acrylic yarn, which lucky for me, is not that expensive, still though, one skein of yarn knits only a little more than one blanket, and due to my own tightening budget recently, i am not able to buy as much yarn as i used to, and therefore am not able to knit as many blankets as i would like, and as these cats need :(

Therefore i, and the cats, would greatly appreciate any help at all in buying the yarn i need to make these cats who, lets face it, have already been through enough, lives a little more peaceful.

Thank you all in advance :D
