Her note reads:

Greetings!  My name is Waleska, founder of MIsion en Movimienta, Making Lil’ Heads Warm- Fee Looking Chic.  I started this mission 5 years ago, sending St. Jude Children’s Hospital crochet beanies and slilppers.  Then helping other Missioners with different articles like flip-flops, school supplies and more, reaching countries like India, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

I am feeling very blessed and thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of your mission/project.
I started crocheting years ago as a hobby, then learning it was a Call to Help others.

That’s how it turned into a Mission. ❤

I’ll love to keep having the opportunity to crochet for your mission.  Count on me if so!

You can look me up on Facebook and see what I do

Chemo Hats made by church ladies

The women of their local units held a humanitarian service event, Hands and Hearts in which they gathered together to make these and donate them to Knitting Rays of Hope.

We are so incredibly grateful that they found us and were moved to donate to spread love and hope into the world!

Here are some pictures as the hats were being made

We are so proud of you!

Thank you!

New Utrecht High School sends Hope

We received 2 boxes full of hats of all sizes and styles from a teacher and students from New Utrecht High School in New York.

We are so impressed when youth get involved in making a difference in the world- showing compassion and love for strangers is a lesson that few understand until much later in life.

A note from Ms. Liz reads:

Attached you will find 53 hats (20, adults, 16 kids and 17 toddler/baby) made for your organization.  I am honored to present you with this contribution on behalf of my students and hope that it will help you in keeping all those in need safe and warm.

I look forward to continue our contributions in the near future.  Thank you from myself and my crafting students for giving us the opportunity to be a part of it.

We are so proud of everyone involved and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Thank you!

Colleen included a note that reads:

I hope you can find an organization that will benefit from this donation.  I recently started crocheting again.  My grandmother taught me when I was a teenager.  I find it very relaxing and feel good when others can benefit!  My skill level may not by 100% but all these hats were made with 100% love!  Thank you for your dedication to community service!  You are what makes our country great!

We are so glad you found us and will include these as part of a huge Knitting Rays of Hope delivery that we are preparing right now.

Thank you for sharing your background- how wonderful your grandmother taught you this art that will allow you to make a difference in this world.

Thank you!
