Do you remember “You’ve got mail” when email was a fairly new concept and how excited you were to hear that from your computer? Imagine me more excited when I received our first box of hats from South Dakota! We have recently connected with a wonderful lady named Cindy on Facebook, and she told us that she would send us a box. This weekend, we received the box full of 34 hats that she and Brittni made for babies in the NICU and chemo warriors of all ages. I am so excited about how people care and are willing to help us spread hope- 1 hat at a time. In early 2012, when we started on this road, we never imagined that we would be receiving help from South Dakota and are so delighted that Cindy & Brittni are helping to make our world a better place!
The hats they made are so beautiful and soft. Some have a really great brim. They are all so unique and I am so grateful to be able to include these hats in our April shipment to make people hopeful. I truly believe people fight harder when they have hope. I am truly grateful to everyone who has contributed; I feel overwhelmed with joy and appreciation because of you. It’s because of you that we are gratified that we started Knitting Rays of Hope officially!
Thomas D. Willhite, an awareness instructor and novelist says it best
“How do you say ‘thank you’ for sunshine or health…
for clear days or gentle rains… for happiness, joy or love?
You say it by sharing what you have.
You say it by making the world
a better place in which to live.”
