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!

Chemo Hats made by church ladies

The women of their local units held a humanitarian service event, Hands and Hearts in which they gathered together to make these and donate them to Knitting Rays of Hope.

We are so incredibly grateful that they found us and were moved to donate to spread love and hope into the world!

Here are some pictures as the hats were being made

We are so proud of you!

Thank you!

New Utrecht High School sends Hope

We received 2 boxes full of hats of all sizes and styles from a teacher and students from New Utrecht High School in New York.

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.

A note from Ms. Liz reads:

Attached you will find 53 hats (20, adults, 16 kids and 17 toddler/baby) made for your organization.  I am honored to present you with this contribution on behalf of my students and hope that it will help you in keeping all those in need safe and warm.

I look forward to continue our contributions in the near future.  Thank you from myself and my crafting students for giving us the opportunity to be a part of it.

We are so proud of everyone involved and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Thank you!
