Celebrating Success means Celebrating You!

Our friend, Donna from Washington reminds us with a lovely note and beautiful hats to celebrate success.  She sent us these lovely hats for pediatric cancer warriors, some of the bravest lil’ guys you will ever meet!

Her note reads:

Hello, my friend!  Enclosing 25 hats and they are being sent with gratitude for your mission… and your vision created years ago which has turned into such a success!
Thank you!

Vanessa and I were recently reminiscing when we started Knitting Rays of Hope in 2012, when we were trying to quickly loom knit hats while constantly motivating (and slightly pressuring) our small group of kind-hearted work friends to keep creating hats for our newly minted cause.  How we longed for the days where hats would just be sent to us so we can have a stock on hand to distribute to the local hospitals — all to spread hope!  We saw that if we kept going, just keep our fingers and yarn working that one day this would come- we would be established and have a steady supply.  Because we firmly believed that people want to help and be a part of good!  And we were Right!!  Thank God!

And now we celebrate you for consistently believing in doing good in the world and making our vision of spreading hope a success!

Thank you! We are ever so grateful for our consistent friends who support us and provide a steady supply of hats that will be distributed to spread warmth, love, and hope!   Our group of knitters expanded and reside in different states, but all have the common goal of spreading hope.

We owe any success to you– all of you, the consistent knitters, the first time contributors and those who support us with prayer and good thoughts & vibes!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

These hats will bring lots of joy, warmth and hope to their recipients!  We are very glad you found us and welcome to the World of Loom Knitting!
