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!
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!
A while ago, Gail sent us these adorable hats.
We will get them ready to be delivered in our next delivery!
We are very grateful to all of our generous knitters! You are making a difference in this world!
Keep up the great work!
Last month, we received this box full of hats from Joaine in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
Her card reads:
Thank you for all the you both do! Keep up the amazing work!
Wishing you andyour families a very Merry Christmas and a new Year full of prosperity and success!
We are so grateful to have received these hats and are sure that they will bring smiles and hope to the recipients!
Last week, Melissa delivered 87 hats for children cancer warriors at CHOC.
We hope that these hats will bring warmth, hope, and smiles to the special cancer fighters just in time for the holidays! This makes the “to date total” of delivered hats, blankets, and scarves 6,099! We are very proud of our team and community to make this possible!
Wishing everyone love and joy!
Earlier this month, Donna from Washington sent us a box full of 34 hats for her final delivery for 2017. She had a goal of sending 100 hats to Knitting Rays of Hope- which she exceeded for a total of 104 for the year! We are amazed by her generosity, steadfast kindness and support!
Donna sent this cute card that reads:
Enclosing 34 hats for my final delivery for 2017! I wanted to get one more in–so hard to stop, but I am a slow loom knitter! Figured I best get this to you!
With love and warm wishes and a fervent thanks you for all you do!
We are so impressed with Donna having a goal of how many hats to make for charity and then exceeding that goal! It’s almost time to make some New Year resolutions, and if you want to make one for making a difference in the world, please consider making a goal similar to Donna’s.
Thank you so much, Donna!
True to her word, Becky sent us a box full of 21 hats in time for Christmas!Becky’s note reads:
I hope that you and your family had a nice Thanksgiving!
I’m sending a small box this time, just 21 hats, but hopefully they will arrive in time for you to use them for Christmas deliveries!
Thank you so much for all your hard work & making it possible for me to reach out to others in this small way. I pray each hat will bring comfort & warmth to each one it touches! God bless you & your family!
We are in the midst of labeling the hats and getting them ready to be delivered this week! Thank you so much for being part of this team that spreads love and hope into the world!
Over the weekend, we gave 183 hats to our good friend, Melissa to take into the NICU and CHOC.
56 Chemo Hats for Pediatric Chemo Warriors
127 Hats for Babies in the NICU
We have more hats, that we are getting labeled for another delivery just before Christmas!
Thank you for helping us spread love and hope!
