Knitted scarves distributed to thousands in need across South Africa
Philanthropist and "Arts Angel", Carolyn Steyn once again inspired the nation to knit scarves in their annual Secret Scarf Mission which has grown in leaps and bounds over the past five years.
The project successfully managed to keep many underprivileged South Africans warm with the distribution of the scarves on Tuesday.
Steyn joined Joanne Joseph to talk about this year's event.
In parks all around South Africa, on bridges, parking meters, we hung scarves on trees and every scarf which is made with love had a love note attached to itCarolyn Steyn, Philanthropist and ‘Arts Angel’
