We recently received this box of hats from our special friend in Washington. She calls herself the Little Old Goat Lady on Mason Ridge.
We are so grateful for her consistent generosity and steadfast support!
Earlier this month, Gail from Washington sent us a box full of adorable and colorful hats for pediatric chemo warriors and babies in the NICU.
Her note reads:
Enclosed are 40 hats. Most are infants and toddler sized, but I have included a couple of larger sizes in case they are needed.
Thank you for all you do!
We appreciate and are grateful for all sizes! We love that you care so much to include some for everybody!
Thank you for helping us spread hope and love in the world!
Earlier this month, Knitting Rays of Hope delivered 15 blankets, 30 children sized hats and 135 NICU sized hats to CHOC and St. Joe’s in Orange County.
We are so grateful to have such a sweet friend and supporter like Melissa, a nurse at St. Joe’s. Melissa has enlisted her daughter, Hailey’s help to sort and deliver the hats. We love that Hailey and Melissa are making a difference in the world and helping Knitting Rays of Hope reach so many patients!
I know we make a difference in the world by spreading hope to over 5,327 hat recipients and their families.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Today we are celebrating our 5 Year Blogiversary!
When we first began this journey, we had no idea that 5 years later we would still be going strong. It really is an amazing feeling to look back at how we have contributed to others and helped make their days a bit brighter. We are proud that we have done our part to give back to our community and we are so proud to have made and met so many wonderful friends on this journey. As we have said before, we could not have done this without the support of our friends. A big shout out to everyone who made it possible for Knitting Rays of Hope to provide 4,956 hats to NICU babies and Cancer Warriors these past 5 years. Here is to another wonderful 5 years to come filled with continued friends, new friends, and Rays of Sunshine!
