The muscle that helps

I am so grateful to everyone involved in spreading love and hope into the world with this delivery!  I was especially proud that my son tries to help in areas that he can, with muscle for moving the deliveries and counting the hats!

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!
