For each $18 ebook sold, $16.80 USD is donated to the Against Malaria Foundation (the remainder is made up of Paypal and Ravelry fees). Each ebook purchased will help purchase nets that keep people safe. What do you need to do? Just buy the book and get knitting!

As designers, we are constantly inspired and impressed by the knitting community. Our work goes out into the world and passes through so many hands, and in this we saw an opportunity to contribute.

May 8 2017 UPDATE: so far we've donated $43,667 USD - this buys 17,800 nets, to protect 32,000 people (this is the entire population of 55-65 villages)
