The Little Yellow Duck Project

Have you heard of The Little Yellow Duck Project?

"The Little Yellow Duck Project is a global initiative highlighting the life-saving random acts of kindness of blood, bone marrow, and organ and tissue donation. Whilst every random act of kindness has the ability to brighten someone’s day, these donations have the ability to literally save or transform someone’s entire life."

What is the Little Yellow Duck Project?

The Little Yellow Duck Project involves people around the world handcrafting little yellow duck gifts as random acts of kindness that are left in public places for others to find. A special tag on each one invites the finder to take their gift home to brighten their day and to visit this website to register where they found their gift. We hope that the stories and information found here will encourage them to pledge their own random act of kindness by registering to donate blood, bone marrow, organs tissues.

I recently heard about this and I couldn't wait a single second before I started my first duck which I left a local library.


Then, that obviously sparked me to want to make my own little duck pattern to share with others to make.

So here's my little duck I came up with... Puddles the Tiny Duck! Name after his larger friend Paddles the Duck.






You can find the free pattern to Puddles the Tiny Duck on Ravelry.
