67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day (South Africa)

Zelda la Grange, long time Personal Assistant to our beloved late former President Nelson Mandela, presented me with the challenge of making 67 blankets for Mandela Day. (July 18). Obviously this would be impossible for me to do alone and so this group was established as a call for help to friends who are interested in helping those less privileged by making a blanket (with your own two hands!).
If you pledge to make a blanket, please post on this page and email my Personal Assistant, Johan Vos at [email protected], your contact details for any events we may have to promote this worthy cause.
By July 1, I would like us to get together to hand in our blankets.
A worthwhile charity still needs to be identified, but that will happen in due course.
Blankets can be knitted, or if you can crochet, that is fine too. Blankets should measure 150 cm x 200 cm. (Standard single bed size). You can decide on your own size squares, your own color - but preferably a darker colour so as not to show up dirt too easily.

One favour - if you pledge to do this, please keep your promise. I am counting on 67 people making a blanket each. We can have a lot of fun - and all for a fantastic cause in the name of our beloved Madiba, who will live on in our hearts forever.
