Spreading Rays of Hope…a hat at a time

A big Thank You to Judy from Hacienda Heights, California.  Judy sent us 9 adorable knitted hats, 4 of which are for micro preemies.


The stitches and designs are so meticulous and make the hats so adorable.  We welcome you, Judy to Team Knitting Rays of Hope and appreciate your contribution in spreading hope in a world of suffering.

Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!

Last week, we delivered 16 hats for adults to the Oncology Center at Kaiser Permanente in Ontario, California.  There were a variety of color, sizes and patterns to choose from.

As we took the elevator down to the basement and walked to the reception area, memories of my sister-in-law flooded my mind.  It was as if I could feel her spirit and her strength, just as I did when we were sitting there waiting to be called for her chemotherapy appointment.  Wanda is still my hero and my inspiration to be brave and strong.

I am grateful to everyone who has contributed to Knitting Rays of Hope, without you this delivery would not have been made possible.

Thank you for making a difference!

A great reminder!

Free yourself from negative people.

These 25 wonderful hats for babies in the NICU were made by Betsy from Pennslyvania.  She is a new member of Team Knitting Rays of Hope and found us on Mentalfloss.com


These hats are adorable and will absolutely spread hope to the families of the itty bitty NICU patients.  We are so thrilled that the article in Mental Floss is helping new people read about us and inspiring them to help!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

She included a card that read

Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity!  Sorry it took so long to get these off to you,  I just kept doing “one more”!  I hope these will work for you- I tried a few new things!   On to the next batch!  I hope you have a wonderful week.  Thanks for the inspiration.

God Bless You
