Our sweet friend, Melissa picked up our delivery for May, which consisted of 50 hats for children cancer warriors at CHOC and 141 baby items for St. Joseph’s.
The delivery for St. Joseph’s will be just in time for all the new moms on Mother’s Day! We were able to donate 3 blankets & matching baby hat sets, along with 135 other baby hats of various sizes, colors and styles.
We greatly appreciate everyone who made this special delivery possible and are so amazed that our grand total of hats delivered is 5,147! We are so appreciative of everyone on our team– you make a difference!
We recently received 20 baby hats for little baby boys and girls from Florida.
We are so grateful that these were sent to us, and we will include them in our May delivery to St. Joseph’s Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit.
Thank you so much!
Our new friend, Joey sent us 2 boxes full of these soft and adorable baby hats and blankets!
She also included a note that reads:
Please accept these hats and blankets. All were made in a non-smoke, non-pet home.
My hope is the are able to keep some little ones warm and bring some joy to their families.
Thank you! We so appreciate your generosity and are grateful you found us!
A new friend, Rosanne from New Jersey sent us these 40 hats for babies in the NICU.
She attached a card to each hat that reads:
Here’s a loom-knit hat
- from a non-smoking home in NJ
- machine washed 2x Dreft Newborn
- contains no wool
From bartleby & rowe
Her note reads:
We emailed last week- This is Box 1 of 2, full of loom knit hats, mostly preemie and baby sizes with a few others. I’m getting better at it, but these were my first ones. Box 2 is also in the mail.
Thanks for the work you do!
We are so appreciative that Rosanne found us and sent us such a great bundle to help spread love, joy and hope in the world!
Today we are celebrating our 5 Year Blogiversary!
When we first began this journey, we had no idea that 5 years later we would still be going strong. It really is an amazing feeling to look back at how we have contributed to others and helped make their days a bit brighter. We are proud that we have done our part to give back to our community and we are so proud to have made and met so many wonderful friends on this journey. As we have said before, we could not have done this without the support of our friends. A big shout out to everyone who made it possible for Knitting Rays of Hope to provide 4,956 hats to NICU babies and Cancer Warriors these past 5 years. Here is to another wonderful 5 years to come filled with continued friends, new friends, and Rays of Sunshine!
We want to wish everyone a wonderful Easter! We hope that your Easter is filled with love and family time.
These are the special creations we delivered just for Easter. Thank you to everyone who supports us! We couldn’t do it without you.
