Spreading Rays of Hope…a hat at a time

Betsy in Pennsylvania sent us another package full of hats for babies in the NICU.  She is whipping out really cute hats of different colors for both little boys and girls.


We are very aware of how lucky we are to have such talented and generous team members and cannot express our gratitude enough!

Thank you!  Thank you!

A BIG THANK YOU to Petty Officer Jordan who sent in 10 crocheted hats in different styles, colors and sizes.  We are so impressed with these hats and thank you for taking the time to make the hats!


Jordan successfully made each hat different and these will definitely bring smiles and hope to their recipients!

We received this box in April, but have been extremely busy and got behind on Knitting Rays of Hope’s business.   Keep the hats coming, we will be sending out monthly shipments to our local Neo-Natal Intensive Care Units and Oncology Centers!

Thank you for your contribution and service to our country!

Hope Rays:

Happy Mother’s Day!

A Willing Heart

Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.

It’s International Pay It Forward day, today, where people all over the world are performing acts of kindness for others without expecting anything in return.  Instead the recipients are asked to “pay the kindness forward” to others, essentially creating a positive ripple effect of giving.


It doesn’t have to be big, just kind.  We are going to participate, will you?

We are interested in hearing how you participated with your wonderful random acts of kindness.
Please share.

Last week we mailed out 55 hats to the pediatric oncology center at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital (LLUCH).  We are thankful to have such a dedicated team that continually makes hats to spread hope and show support, making this shipment happen.


I am pleased that my daughter continues to tag all the hats and prepare the shipment, taking time out of her hectic teenage schedule.  Thank you Antoinette for shipping the box for Knitting Rays of Hope.

This shipment will put our hat counter to 2,624 hats donated to date.  With this in mind, I have a strong feeling, we will break a 3,000 hat mark very soon!  We think that is so awesome and would like to thank each and every one of you that have made this possible!

We are making a different in the world by spreading hope and love!
