A new friend, Keila, from Shreveport in Louisiana, found us and sent us chemo caps in various sizes and styles, ear warmers and PICC Line Covers.
Her note reads:
I recently found your organization online and was so excited to contribute to such an awesome cause. I am sending beanies in various sizes, ear warmers and PICC Line covers.
Thank you for creating this organization and allowing me to make someone’s day a little brighter.
We are so grateful you found us and will include these in our next delivery. We cannot spread hope and love without your generosity.
Last week, our dear friend, Melissa was able to deliver 123 items to the Pediatric Oncology Unit at CHOC (Children’s Hospital in Orange County). It included 3 scarves, 1 headband and 119 hats of various styles, colors, and sizes.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this delivery, by making the hats, labeling and photographing the hats to delivering the hats! We are so appreciative of you and your dedication to making this world a better place! It’s easy as 1-2-3 because of you and your support!
We received a package filled with hats from the National Honor Society from Skyridge High School in Utah.
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.
We are so proud of everyone involved and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
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!
Our friend Michelle, from Bakersfield, California sent us another package of hats– all different colors, styles, and sizes.
Michelle also wrote us a note that reads:
Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your amazing organization. Thank God for people like you– spreading kindness simply because you can. Blessings to you and everyone who receives these hats.
Thank you, Michelle, for your consistent contributions and willingness to help make items to spread hope and love. We are so grateful for our community and it’s because of people like you that we are able to spread hope, love, and warmth!
A new friend, Wendy in Utah sends us these adorable hats and booties for babies.
Wendy’s note reads:
Please find enclosed a number of hats and a pair of baby booties. The hats are of various sizes. I am glad to have found your site where I can send donations. I have some new yarn, and left over yarn and wanted it to be put to good use, and to make good use of the spare time I have. My home is pet-free and smoke-free. I have taught myself to knit and find it therapeutic with stress relief as well, so it’s a win-win thing going on here. I love seeing all the various projects you post on Facebook and I thought, “Finall, now I know where to send my work!”
We are so glad you found us and sent us your creations! Thank you for helping us spread hope and love into the world.
Our good friend, Cricket from New Jersey sent us 30 hats.
Cricket also sent a note that reads:

Thank you for your steadfast generosity!
Stella from Aurora, Colorado sent us these adorable hats.
We will definitely include these in our delivery that we are currently preparing for this month.
We appreciate Stella’s generosity, charitable heart, and support!
Thank you for helping us spread love and hope!
Our good friend, Robin from Sunshine Doo-Dads in Phoenix, Arizona sent us these cheery hats of all sizes.
Robin’s note reads:
I am happy to be shipping off this over stuffed box to your wonderful cause! I already had all but 1 of these hats completed when you issued your request for blankets. Although I am not currently a blanket maker, I am going to learn so that I can contribute! Thank you for your efforts and providing so much with my donation
We love how Robin’s hope and cheery spirit is so contagious from her “Sunshine Doo-Dads” to her willingness to try to learn how to make blankets. We are so grateful for Robin as a great supporter/friend and an active and consistent member of our community!
Have a great day!
