Knit for Kids Spokesperson
World Vision is honored to partner with Debbie Macomber, who proudly serves as the Knit for Kids Spokesperson. As a #1 New York Times bestselling author with more than 200 million copies of her books in print worldwide, Macomber brings to life the compelling relationships that embrace family, community and enduring friendships, filling her readers with a sense of love and hope.
Macomber is the author of more than 200 novels, including the beloved and bestselling Cedar Cove. Set in Cedar Cove (Port Orchard), Washington, which is Debbie’s hometown, Cedar Cove eventually became the Hallmark Channel’s first dramatic scripted television series.
In addition to her bestselling novels, Macomber is an avid knitter and owns her own cafe, The Grey House Cafe in Port Orchard, Washington.
In August 2014, Debbie and her family traveled to Kenya with World Vision. While there, they met with an HIV support group and gave sweaters knitted by Knit for Kids volunteers to distribute within the community.
In November 2017, Debbie and her daughter traveled to Lebanon with World Vision. While there, she visited schools and handed out hats and gloves that were knitted by Knit for Kids volunteers to refugee children in great need.
We are thrilled that Debbie shares her enthusiasm for World Vision’s Knit for Kids in her endeavors as she spreads our stirring mission to her legion of devoted readers and beyond.
