December's charity colour is a celebration of democracy, and a call to action to end disenfranchisement and allow all citizens to have a say in the direction of their communities and their countries. The right to vote is of immediate relevance in the American state of Georgia, where a run-off election scheduled for January 5 will decide between the Republican senators under whose leadership tens of thousands of predominantly Black and POC voters have been disenfranchised (via voter role purges, strict ID laws, gerrymandering, and other tactics), and their Democratic challengers. No matter who ultimately prevails, it is in the best interest of all citizens that democracy be allowed to speak freely and fully. To that end, we are donating $16 from every skein of Suffrage sold to the New Georgia Project, a non-partisan organization dedicated to ensuring that eligible voters are registered and able to vote on election day.

Note: this listing is priced per 1 skein.
