Story

Do you know what "p/hop" is? 

You can now visit the official p/hop website by clicking here.


p/hop is an amazing knitting community project that supports the work of MSF.  There are many ways you can get involved, and making a donation is a key way that knitters can directly contribute to the humanitarian work of MSF.

How does it work?

Knitting and crochet designers have all contributed by donating their unique patterns to p/hop and these are available to download from the p/hop website.   Simply choose a pattern (or three!), download, and make a donation based on what you feel the pattern is worth to you.  We don't set a price for the patterns, as we leave that decision up to you.  As you are knitting your free pattern, and especially as you come to the end of the project and you are admiring it, ask yourself how many hours of pleasure it gave you? How many new techniques did you learn, for free? If you knitted from stash, how much did you save by not buying new yarn?  What would all that be worth? 10p an hour? 25p an hour? It's pennies per hour of pleasure - or p/hop for short. 

Donating through Just Giving is quick, easy and totally secure. You don't need to add your name, you can be "anonymous" or "knitter extraordinaire" or "the frogger".

Using the Just Giving site is easy-peasy. Médecins Sans Frontières UK gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

Thank you for your donation.

Please help up spread the word! There are widgets and things you can copy to put on your own blog which will link here, just click on "Share this page" at the top and you are taken right to them.
The more people who know about p/hop the better!
