About the partnering organisation
‘Knit One Give One‘ (kogo) is a not-for-profit organisation that asks volunteers to donate time and wool to knit warm winter woollies that kogo then distributes to people in need through over 250 community groups. They’re always looking for more hand knitted scarves, beanies, children’s toys or blankets.
