Can you knit a tiny jumper for little babies in Africa?

I read a post over on The Ribbon Girl Blog about one of their Design Team Members - Dawny P doing a collection of sweaters/jumpers for babies in Africa.

She is asking if anyone can knit a tiny little jumper and beanie hat for poor babies in Africa - please pop over to her blog for the full story and a copy of the very simple knitting pattern - I am going to try to knit at least one.  Rather than pastel colours, the little woolies should be knitted in dark/bright colours as they are seldom washed.  If you can't knit one yourself, could you help by spreading the word out there in the land of blog?  This is the link to the post on Dawny's blog
Thanks for taking the time to read this - as soon as I know how much wool is needed I will let you know.  If you are a knitter I bet you are like me with lots of odd balls of wool in the bottom of the wool tub/drawer/container!

Edited to add - Toni just posted a completed jumper and hat on her blog here and said it took her less than 100g to make both.
