formerly the Stay Strong Tote foundation, our name has changed but our mission hasn't
A Shrug Club Kit contains everything you need to make a shrug: 400 yards of our machine wash and dry acrylic yarn, shrug pattern, and 2 ties to "lace" your sleeves closed. Our kits even include US19 circular needles or a Q crochet hook!
We know the generosity of the knit and crochet community and that so many of you do charity work. We appreciate that knitters and crocheters have chosen our organization to support. Out of this gratitude we worked hard to find an affordable yarn option that is beautiful enough to keep but affordable enough to donate.
So what is the Shrug Club?
The Shrug Club allows you to swap shrugs for 1/2 price kits. Each Shrug Club Kit includes a card for you to write a message to the mom who will receive it. As long as this card is attached to your shrug when donating, all future kits are half price. Any yarn can be used for donations as long as the finished shrug weight and feel are comparable and the card for the mom is attached.
Your first purchase has already qualified you to become part of the Shrug Club - of course there is no obligation for you to purchase more than one kit - OR DONATE THIS SHRUG. Your financial support already makes you part of our community. Additional kits won't contain needles or the pattern as you have those from your starter kiit. They will include 2 laces for “seaming” your sleeves and a self-addressed label for shipping back to us.
WE WILL ALSO PROVIDE YOU WITH A TAX RECEIPT FOR YOUR DONATED SHRUG ACKNOWLEDGING YOUR DONATION.
Your Shrug Club Kit will be shipped in a bag large enough to accommodate your shrug should you choose to donate it back to us. Carefully cut open the taped seal in case you’d like to reuse the bag for return shipping. You will need to pay shipping back to us. Please note, US19 needles (Or Q crochet hook) and pattern are only included with your first kit.
We will also be starting a virtual Shrug Club on Zoom. Join us for some knitting, crocheting and lots of Shrug Talk!
Again, there is no obligation to purchase more than one kit but we would love for you to become part of our community and join us "Sending Hugs through Shrugs" to some very worried moms.
Kits costs $60 which includes shipping. Additional kits cost $30 (also includes shipping) when donating a comparable shrug. Please specify your color choice: Faith, Hope, Courage or Grace and whether you’d like a knit or crochet kit in the “Notes” section when checking out through paypal. Thank you for your support.
