kogo started out in 2004 with a few ladies sitting around a lounge room enjoying their favourite pastime of knitting. They were hatching a plan of how to assist people who were homeless; so these people could benefit from their treasured garments. Well, since its inception kogo have distributed over 200,000 beanies, scarves, blankets, clothes and toys via 250 different public benevolent institutions, charities and government agencies, contributed by around 5,000 volunteer creative people. What a great way to enjoy the wonderful crafts of knitting and crochet, and also participate in a much-needed community project.
So, do you also have a project that's tucked away in the cupboard somewhere - a half-finished shawl, a jumper you thought would be great for (last) winter, maybe a baby's blanket for an upcoming birth? Time to get click-clacking and get rewarded with that "just-finished" feeling.
