Donation to a charity in Barrie, Ontario. Donation was made to the Barrie Women & Children's Shelter.


When I started Knits By Brit, I always wanted to incorporate charitable donations within my business. I wanted to give back to the community and there are so many wonderful local organizations that I couldn’t choose just one. 

I decided that I would rotate through organizations every three months. I began collecting $2 from every item sold (including paid patterns) over the course of the quarter and donating the lump sum at the end of the three months.

2022 Outlook

I started this initiative in October 2021 and it was a huge success! The generosity from friends, family and customers was unbelievable! Every quarter I post the results on social media so you can follow along. I believe in being fully transparent with this initiative, so at the end of each quarter, I post the total sales and I shout out anyone who gave additional donations on my social media platforms.
