About Us

The seeds for kogo were planted in July 2004. It was a particularly cold winter in Melbourne and there was a sudden resurgence in the popularity of knitting scarves. These two factors combined to motivate Ros Rogers to get friends and family to direct their knitting energy towards knitting for charity…….
We have found that the most efficient way to distribute our knitted items is through community partner organisations within Australia. These organisations deal with a myriad of people undergoing hardship…….
The kogo board meets regularly to determine the strategy for the organisation and look at opportunities for expansion. Their combined skills and passion (together with our wonderful volunteers) are what drive kogo and have resulted in the organisation growing year after year.....
We answer the most common questions that people ask us such as “Do you have to register to be part of kogo?” and “What items do you need for kogo?”......

Donate & Help us to spread the warmth!

Your donation to kogo can help to make a difference to people who are sleeping outdoors or living in crisis accommodation or refuges as well as remote indigenous communities, children who are at risk or young, disadvantaged mums.

With your support we can spread the warmth with our hand knitted winter woollies to more of the vulnerable people in our community. A warm scarf, beanie or blanket that’s been hand knitted with love will warm the heart as well as the body. Make a difference and donate now.
