Spreading Hope…a hat at a time.


In December, we shipped 109 children’s hats to Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital (link), and we received a Thank You letter that had some words we would like to share with you:

You’ve been directly involved in changing lives at Loma Linda University Health.  Together we’re bringing peace, joy and hope to our family of patients, students and educators.

I thought these words were profound, as this is definitely a team effort and I would like to thank you again for being a part of our team.  You make a difference with your support and really make an impact on the lives of others.  Though invisible and cannot be measured, Hope is absolutely a necessity.

In 2014, I strongly encourage you to make a difference in your community.  If you would like to get involved with Knitting Rays of Hope, but don’t know how to make a hat, we have a tutorials page (link) full of YouTube video tutorials, that we’ve collected and thought were helpful when we began.  If you already know how to crochet, knit, loom knit or sew hats, and would like to send us your creations, please visit our Get Involved page (link) that provides all the information you need.

If yarn is not your thing, I understand but I urge you to find your passion and use it to make a difference for others!  You will find the rewards in your works.

  1. Hello, I wonder if you would need mittens to go with all those hats? [ http://www.cheerfulgivers.org/2014/01/mittens-blankets-birthday/ ]

    I am now ‘virtual’ volunteering for a unique nonprofit organization called Cheerful Givers which provides toy-filled birthday gift bags so that less fortunate parents can recognize their child’s birthday with a gift. Hope you will visit their website and consider making a donation – http://www.cheerfulgivers.org

    Thank you in advance.


    • Hello! Thank you for connecting! And what a wonderful idea- mittens. Yes we would love mittens to be donated. Thanks bunches!
      I will visit your organization shortly!
      Thanks again!
