67 Blankets for Mandela Day celebrates 3 years
3 years ago, Carolyn Steyn was challenged to knit 67 blankets to donate to the poor and homeless on Mandela Day. A challenge to great for one person, Steyn created a facebook page appealing for people to assist with meeting the deadline, the response was overwhelming and the rest is history.
Three years later, the campaign has gone international, and to celebrate the third birthday of this campaign, thousands of blankets are to be knitted and combined to form a massive portrait. Renos chatted to Carolyn Steyn about the campaign and the birthday plans.
