October's charity colour is a bit personal. It was developed to mirror the aesthetics of the urn my mother chose for herself before passing away in October of 2016. Her final month with us was made so much more bearable by the excellent care, compassion, and comfort provided by the St. Boniface Hospital Palliative Care Facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We've chosen the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation as our charity this month and will be directing $16 CAD for every skein sold to their palliative care facility specifically. Everyone deserves to die with dignity, in comfort, and surrounded by family who can visit at any hour and not have to worry about their own needs. My family is eternally grateful to the St. B facility and their incredible staff for the peace of mind they gave us in our hardest days; it should be a human right to have access to such care, and we're happy to give a little bit toward that dream.


Note: this listing is priced per 1 skein.
