Noro Lovers Can Help Japan
KFI (Knitting Fever Inc.), the American distributor of the gorgeous Japanese hand-dyed yarns, Noro, has set up a matching funds contribution offer to aid disaster victims. Sion Elalouf, founder of KFI, posted to Ravelry today that their company and affiliates would match dollar for dollar made to The American Red Cross (up to $50,000). Checks should be made out to The American Red Cross and earmarked for the Japanese earthquake relief fund, then mailed to KFI: 315 Bayview Avenue, Amityville, NY 11701. All contributions will be made in the name of the knitting community. By the way, yarn manufacturer Noro is located in the central/south of Japan, far from the northeastern area devastated by the tsunami.
