Welcome to Woolly Wishes 501(c)(3)!
Using the handicrafts to empower Turkish children affected by natural disasters and poverty.
URGENT SUPPORT NEEDED: Two 7.8 and 7.4 magnitude earthquakes have struck Turkey, causing 21,000+ deaths and leaving hundreds of thousands injured, homeless, and orphaned.
We are actively accepting donations to support this severe crisis. Children are presently freezing in Turkey's cold winter temperatures and are in immense need of warmth and support.
During the first several years of a child's life, the foundation for their future is set. But the compromised living conditions, family stress, and lack of resources often associated with resource-limited lifestyles can significantly undermine child development. To help restore the opportunities that make a childhood memorable, we provide support for Middle Eastern families living in dire situations by gifting them handmade items.
Donate Knitted, Crocheted, or Hand-Sewn Items
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to impact the lives of underprivileged Syrian families, even if they are located across the globe. Learn about our step-by-step guide on how you can donate handmade items and impact children going through unimaginable crises by visiting the Donate Items page.
Aside from the handicrafts, there are several other ways through which anyone can support our efforts. Only through your generous donations are we able to afford more yarn and continue supplying refugees with much-needed items. Interested in promoting our mission by donating?

Once you ship your handmade donations to the Woolly Wishes address, we'll add your name and city to our donations map. Help us pin as many locations as possible!
