Blankets For Baby Rhinos
We are a craft conservation group that supports wildlife orphanages and anti-poaching units, by supplying them with knitted and crochet blankets and clothing. We also use our crafts to raise funds for our beneficiaries to supply much needed equipment and animal feed.
Additionally we have supported impoverished communities bordering wildlife reserves in an attempt to educate local people about the value of their local wildlife.
We welcome knitters, crocheters and crafters to produce items that we can use as donations or sell/ raffle to provide funds. Our closed facebook group provides information and support for those wishing to join. Members who can’t craft help in many other ways including transport (within South Africa and international) raising funds, help with graphics, website etc. We appreciate all help and this group would not survive without it. If you would like to be part of Blankets for Baby Rhinos, please request to join our Facebook group. You will be asked a short series of questions.
Please contact us if you would like more information.
Blankets For Baby Rhinos also work with many other rescue groups to provide hand knitted and crocheted blankets and toys. Here are some of the fabulous organisations and species we support.
