Gail’s Contributions

Recently, we received a box from Gail full of these baby hats.  All of them are so cuddly, soft, warm and adorable for babies and kiddos!

We are so grateful for friends like Gail, who are keeping their fingers busy with knitting for HOPE!

Thank you for wanting to make our world better and actively doing something about it!

So Many Chemo Hats – So Much Love

Last month, we received a box full of colorful hats from our good friend, Donna in Washington State.

Donna's Hats

Her note reads:

It is both an amazing & wonderful feeling how often my thoughts turn to you & your work in the world.  It is such an honor to participate.

I read all your posts and pay attention to every note and picture of hats people send.  What a good idea to share these pictures & notes from people! It is so good to feel the connection.

This box of 45 hats is sent with much love.

We appreciate great friends like Donna who always show support and offer words of encouragement to keep going!  Thank you so much!  I am so glad that our contributors feel connected and part of a great team!  There would absolutely be a much smaller Knitting Rays of Hope, if we didn’t have so many generous friends from all over the country!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

Hats to Keep Lil’ Ones Warm

A new friend, Laurie sent us a box a little bit ago full of these hats.

NICU Hat

Her sweet note reads:

25 hats to keep the little ones warm

🙂

We are trying to catch up on all these shipments!  We really do appreciate you and your generosity, and we apologize for not blogging about the shipments we have received sooner.  Between vacations and different classes we have been attending, in addition to spending some quality time with our families, things have been a bit crazy over here!  But I promise we will get all the hats photographed and blogged about!

We are preparing a delivery to the NICU for the end of August (hopefully) and a huge delivery to CHOC for the pediatric oncology unit in September!

Thank you for all your support!

I am sending this box of assorted sized hats to you for Knitting Rays of Hope.  I applaud your efforts and continuing service to the less fortunate.  I am very happy to be able to assist in my own small way.  All are made with love.

Thank you for letting me contribute to this very worthwhile cause.

We are so appreciative of the steadfast friends who are generous and love making a difference in the world!

Thank you!

5 Year Blogiversary!

Today we are celebrating our 5 Year Blogiversary!

Minions

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!

Easter Chicks

These chick hats are for a special Easter delivery!

We love doing these Easter inspired chicks along with the rabbits. Even if the little ones do not know about Easter yet,  it is still a great hat for Spring. We love Spring time when all the flowers are in bloom and the weather brightens up and gets warmer, yet not too warm. It’s a great time to spread rays of sunshine and we look forward to making our next delivery.
