TRENDING NOW: Penguin Sweaters


(WEAU) – On Sunrise, we often try to find the latest trends on what’s happening throughout social media. Although we may not have penguins here in Wisconsin, there’s a way you can help penguins in other parts of the world.

The Penguin Foundation, based at Phillip Island in Australia, is calling for knitters around the globe to send them sweaters for birds in rehab.

Penguins are constantly getting caught in oil spills down under, and they need the tiny sweaters to keep warm and to prevent them from attempting to rid themselves from the toxic oil with their beaks.

The information on how to knit for penguins can be found underneath the picture. If your masterpiece arrives at a time when the penguin foundation is overstocked, the organization will use them in educational programs and sell them in fundraisers.
