#GivingTuesday: The season of giving has arrived

Published on 30 November 2020 2 min read

Join us for a special #GivingTuesday. Today we're donating £1 to charity for every 10 balls of Paintbox Yarns sold, so you can stock up your stash while giving something back.

This year we're helping those in need of some warmth and shelter by supporting three charities from around the world - Warm Up America, Crisis, and Wooligans.

#GivingTuesday charities

For every 10 balls of Paintbox Yarns we sell this Giving Tuesday, we'll donate £1 to charity in support of these three amazing causes.


No one should be homeless and alone this Christmas. Crisis, the UK's national charity for the homeless, provides vital help so that people can rebuild their lives and are supported out of homelessness for good.


We have so much love for Wooligans! Based in Germany, Wooligans help organise volunteers to knit and crochet clothes for the homeless and people in need.

Warm up America

Close to our hearts, Warm Up America trains volunteers to organise the crafting of blankets for those in need. Follow Warm Up America on Facebook for a special edition of Unboxing on Giving Tuesday.
