We received a box of hats made by the ROAM Club from Burroughs High School in Ridgecrest, California.
We always applaud when our youth get involved to make this world a kinder, better place. We are impressed with these hats and the level of difficulty and dedication found– you make us so proud!
These hats will keep babies and chemo warriors warm and feel loved!
Thank you for helping us spread hope, love, and warmth!
A new friend, Barbara from Georgia made 110 red baby beanies in various sizes and styles for the American Heart Association. She later found out that they had discontinued this project and sought us out! Aren’t we lucky she did?
We will donate these red sweetheart hats in honor of today, Valentine’s Day to a local NICU to spread love and hope!
Barbara’s note reads:
These are the hats as per our email conversation.
Hope they work
Any feedback would be welcome.
Hope to make some adult hats now.
We walk in faith and believe in God’s plan. We are grateful you found us and hope that you will continue to want to contribute to Knitting Rays of Hope!
Happy Valentine’s Day!

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
