Hello everyone! Yes this pattern is free: Just head to https://www.mimsidesign.com/freepatterns

But as you see we have the option to pay for it as well. The money will be donated for an organisation that helps young girls to go to school. If you have the time, here is the text for this:

"(...) I'll be sending the money to the "Köy Okulları" part as that is one of my personal concern (http://www.bbog.org/bagis-yap.aspx - of course you can directly donate to them through here).

Köy Okulları are literally schools in villages. In places where the family of the girls are generally poor and can't afford to send the girl to town to go to school. The more there are girls like this, the more children will be uneducated. The more they are stuck in a poor life. I'm not saying that the life in a village is bad - by no means - but with the knowledge of even basic things, life can get so much better. 
 
Just one example that I read about the other day: A woman, who had a chicken coop to have her own eggs and to sell a few to the neighbors and friends, moved to the city, as her husband had found a job there. As an educated woman, she heard that the government supports young farmers financially and applied to it. Eventually they got sick of the city and moved back to their village to grow the chicken coop. Now that woman owns her own business and aims to expand even further. 

If she hadn't gone to school, if she didn't knew how to read and take the initiative, could she have made her own living? No. So many girls are not send to school and it hurts me to see them so naively and unknowingly roaming in this world. Of course school doesn't "cure" naivety but at least it gives the opportunity to expand her knowledge. 

Maybe one of the girls going to those schools will become the next Marie Curie?"
