#iknitforharvey Round Up




WOW, WOW, WOW! You guys really are something else! Over the last couple of months, with your and Blue Sky Fibers' help, we we're able to raise over $7,500.00 for the students of KIPP with the #iknitforharvey campaign..Yes, that is seven, five, zero, zero. I really couldn't be more thankful to be a part of this community. 




So Doug, Huck, and I headed down to Houston last week to visit KIPP DREAM on Friday morning to deliver the AWESOME stuffies you guys knitted (there is some serious talent in this world!). The students were amazing and found this super cool book about knitting that I read to them and we talked even more about knitting afterwards and I'm pretty sure I convinced a few of them to join the club (knitter's unite!). 








Well then we got to the main part of the assembly - the stuffies. Words can't explain how much those Royal Petites meant to these kids, but I'm going to try. I so badly wish that you all could've been there to see their faces light up once they got their animals (I mean, c'mon, look at those faces!) It was one of those moments that made me realize why Jimmy Beans does what we do. 









From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of our entire Jimmy Beans team, I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped us get these guys knitted and to deserving kids. We are so lucky. 

xoxo,
Jimmy
