I began an annual tradition a couple years ago of giving a large portion of profits from the week of Christmas to a charity. It makes my heart full to be able to reach out a helping hand, with the assistance of the Patterns for Pirates community. I just hope that our donations will allow a little extra support for those who need it.
We’ve opted to support the same charities that were benefactors last year. They may change in the future but for this year at least, they will remain the same.
I will be donating to both Action Against Hunger and a local North Texas Food Bank. With the hardships that the past couple years has brought upon everyone, so many more families need help getting enough food on the table and I hope this week will help get more food to more tables in need both here locally and across the world with Action Against Hunger.
You do not need to do anything special for your purchase to count toward the funds being donated during charity week. 30% of every single pattern purchase during this time frame will be donated automatically. *Note- the Fabric for Pirates Fabric Subscriptions transactions will not go through until the 1st of the month, which means even if you sign up during this week the transaction will not apply to this charity week.
If you’ve been eyeing any patterns for your stash, now is the perfect time to grab it and help make our donation amounts even bigger!
Thank you and Happy Holidays,

Hi lovely P4P people.
I’ve had various patterns from you, including loads of fabulous freebies! The slippers and gloves in the latest mailing – and the beanies, scarves etc in the past few years. Thank you so much.
I don’t need any patterns just now, but I’d like to support your charity week. Could you let me know how I can make a donation please? (I’m in the UK)
This is very sweet, you can donate straight to either charities on their sites. Here is the world wide Action Against Hunger: https://www.actionagainsthunger.org/ Here is the food bank local to me: https://ntfb.org/
