Enclosed is a gift for Cha Cha from K9knittersUSA (www.k9knittersusa.com). We are a knitting club and we knit for charity – 100% of all the proceeds from selling dog coats, sweaters and accessories from our website is sent to one of our two charities. All of our admin, advertising, labor, yarn – everything, is donated.
The charities we have chosen this year were inspired by the Presidential candidates: VetDogs, is a charity that provides service and assistance dogs to Veterans who are injured or disabled. This choice was inspired by John McCain and his service to our country.
Best Friends Animal Society, is a charity who, in their own words, “. . . is guided by a simple philosophy: kindness to animals builds a better world for all of us.” They work with humane and rescue groups all over the country, and are probably best known by the public for their show “Dog Town” on the National Geographic channel. This choice was inspired by Barack Obama and his family’s announcement that they will adopt a rescue dog after the election. We hope to knit a God Bless the USA sweater for his family’s dog if we can get the correct information.
This sweater for Cha Cha is a pattern that is unique to K9knittersUSA – the God Bless the USA dog sweater. I hope it fits and I hope Cha Cha can wear it to all the patriotic events she goes to – perhaps even on Election Day!
We are a sister group to K9Knitters in the UK who have been doing this work for two years. We are just getting started, so if Cha Cha could model her sweater on The View – wow, would that be great! Any publicity for us would really help.
Thanks for all the good work you ladies on The View have been doing to keep this election and it’s importance in front of your viewers. And also for allowing your Cha Cha and your love for her to be in the public eye. Helps everyone to know that we dog lovers aren’t so nuts!
