Spreading Hope…a hat at a time.

Last month, we received a box full of colorful hats from our good friend, Donna in Washington State.

Donna's Hats

Her note reads:

It is both an amazing & wonderful feeling how often my thoughts turn to you & your work in the world.  It is such an honor to participate.

I read all your posts and pay attention to every note and picture of hats people send.  What a good idea to share these pictures & notes from people! It is so good to feel the connection.

This box of 45 hats is sent with much love.

We appreciate great friends like Donna who always show support and offer words of encouragement to keep going!  Thank you so much!  I am so glad that our contributors feel connected and part of a great team!  There would absolutely be a much smaller Knitting Rays of Hope, if we didn’t have so many generous friends from all over the country!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

A new friend, Laurie sent us a box a little bit ago full of these hats.

NICU Hat

Her sweet note reads:

25 hats to keep the little ones warm

🙂

We are trying to catch up on all these shipments!  We really do appreciate you and your generosity, and we apologize for not blogging about the shipments we have received sooner.  Between vacations and different classes we have been attending, in addition to spending some quality time with our families, things have been a bit crazy over here!  But I promise we will get all the hats photographed and blogged about!

We are preparing a delivery to the NICU for the end of August (hopefully) and a huge delivery to CHOC for the pediatric oncology unit in September!

Thank you for all your support!

Her note card reads:

Sorry it has taken me so long to get these to you!
The last month or so has been pretty busy for me, but I can’t put it off any longer!
I hope things are going well for you and your family.
Thank you again for all your hard work! I’ll be sending more later this year!
Take care & God Bless!

We are so grateful for friends like Becky who are constantly working on hats to help spread hope, no matter how busy life gets.  We do know about the busy-ness of life, as we have been extremely busy!  We have received about 5 shipments that we haven’t posted about yet.  I will shortly (God willing!)

Thank you so much!

Last month, we received a box of hats from Shirley in Massachusetts.

Her note reads:

I am sending this box of assorted sized hats to you for Knitting Rays of Hope.  I applaud your efforts and continuing service to the less fortunate.  I am very happy to be able to assist in my own small way.  All are made with love.

Thank you for letting me contribute to this very worthwhile cause.

We are so appreciative of the steadfast friends who are generous and love making a difference in the world!

Thank you!

Finding Hope

Last month, our friend Dee from Pennsylvania sent us this box full of hats and even a baby cocoon!

chemo hats

As you can see, the hats are a variety of colors, styles and sizes!

Her note reads:

It’s your friend Dee from Pennsylvania.  Here is another shipment of hats.  As always, made in smoke free, pet free home.  Everything is labeled as to fiber content and laundry instructions.

As I told you before, when I found you guys last year it was because I had a transplant and needed something to occupy my time while being isolated and restricted to home and visits from a select group of family and friends because of the possibilities of infection.  Along the way, I discovered what you wonderful cause is all about, all the people who help you achieve it and became so very important to me to be a small part of it.

It may be a while until my next shipment, we are packing up the house and moving to a retirement community, BUT I will be back!

Keep up the good work!

We are extremely grateful for our friends like Dee, who begin a hobby that gives back and makes this world a better place!

Thank you!  Thank you!
