Make Give Live is a social enterprise that connects and nurtures the wellbeing of people in their communities while crafting beautiful knitwear for you and people in need.
Groups of people get together every week or two in their local cafe or community space to enjoy each others company, a laugh and a cuppa and make a beautiful collection of beanies that we sell as 'buy one - give one' meaning for each one sold we give one to a Kiwi in need through a few Charities.
The purpose of Make Give Live is easing isolation and improving mental health and wellbeing through connection and the well proven therapy of knitting and crochet.
Creative & Brave are thrilled to be joining this wonderful movement which was started here in NZ by two incredible ladies, Claire Conza and Becky Smith. We have taken part in a Make Give Live knitting group and can attest to the positive wellbeing that comes from these events.
We now launch our next step - retailing their sumptuous knitwear and providing you with the opportunity to become an important part of the story. You see, for every woolen item you buy one will be gifted to people in need through local charities like Age Concern and the Women's Refuge. What a great way for us all to give inspire and grow.
Have you felt the cooler temperatures settling in lately? The darker mornings and nights have us already craving stews, warm drinks and a good old session of snuggling on the sofa under a woolen blanket!
Now you can keep your ears cozy and your noggin warm under a beanie from Make Give Live, the timing for this launch couldn't have been better.
The personal benefits of meeting with a knitting group regularly can have a profoundly positive effect on your life...add to that the wellbeing that comes from the act of creating...add to that the wonders that unfold when your creations are gifted to people in need! Drop us a line though our contact form here if you are interested in taking part in Make Give Live, we will pass your information onto Claire and Becky.
