Spreading Hope…a hat at a time.

Our good friend, Robin from Sunshine Doo-Dads in Phoenix, Arizona sent us these cheery hats of all sizes.

Chemo Caps

Robin’s note reads:

I am happy to be shipping off this over stuffed box to your wonderful cause!  I already had all but 1 of these hats completed when you issued your request for blankets.  Although I am not currently a blanket maker, I am going to learn so that I can contribute! Thank you for your efforts and providing so much with my donation

We love how Robin’s hope and cheery spirit is so contagious from her “Sunshine Doo-Dads” to her willingness to try to learn how to make blankets.  We are so grateful for Robin as a great supporter/friend and an active and consistent member of our community!

Have a great day!

Happy New Year

May you have a year that is filled with love, laughter, brightness, and hope!

Happy New Year

For 2020, we thought we would take on a new challenge at Knitting Rays of Hope and ask all of our wonderful contributors to consider making blankets for donation to the Chemo Warriors.

Pink & White Blanket

A blanket crocheted for a friend who is having a baby girl!

We noticed in the hospitals that many of the warriors also enjoy cuddling with a beautiful blanket while receiving their treatments, and we wanted to ask all of you to help us keep them warm and comfortable. NICU babies love blankies too and moms cherish them even after the babies grow and kids of all sizes love to cuddle with their blankets.

We will add a counter for blankets received and hope to meet 200 blankets donated by next year.

Merry Christmas

Wishing you Joy on this Christmas Day!

May your day be filled with laughter, love and hope!
