To Help


  • Host Critter Creation Kit assembly line or learn to knit workshop! Small groups can turn our knit pieces, safety eyes and stuffing into craft kits ready for patients to make their own critters. ​Or contact us to come teach your group how to create a Critter.
  • Cash donations allow us to ship critters to children across the country or purchase supplies. Donate, host a bake sale or do a Facebook birthday fundraiser!
  • Send us your soft yarn, needles or stuffing! We need supplies to create more Critters and to share with groups who want to learn. We also need large ziploc bags and brochure paper for the Critter Creation Kits.
  • Raise awareness of childhood cancer. Send a letter to your congressperson or senator. Find more info at The Truth 365.
  • Donate blood! One pint of blood can be as valuable as donating $1,000! Contact Children's National Blood Donor Center to donate or host the bloodmobile!

Knitters and Crocheters:

  • Send us your Critters! Small Critters are welcome as stress balls for kids during testing and large Critters make wonderful snuggle toys for long days in bed. Thanks for all the wonderful critters we have received so far! Any washable, soft yarn will do-please send a note or birth certificate to specify yarn type.
  • Send us knit squares of any size and we will add them to our "Critter Creation Kits," where patients can make their own toys! Just include one piece of matching yarn at least 3-4 times the length of the square for the child to stitch up the Critter. Any more yarn is used to create a matching pom pom bunny tail! Most squares we receive are about 8x8, but as small as 4" and big as 15" work well!More info here.
  • If you prefer knitting in the round, send us owl bodies! (Free pattern by Jenna Krupar.) We add eyes, yarn for a beak and a stuffing pack! The owl creation kit has only a few simple steps for the cancer fighter to stuff and stitch up their critters!​
