Her note reads:

Here are 35 hats for your project.  They are various sizes, all were made in a smoke-free, pet free setting.

I am really enjoying knitting hats for your very worthwhile project.  Keep up the good work.

We are very grateful for the consistent support and love your dedication to spreading hope!

Thanks so much!


Finding Hope

Last month, our friend Dee from Pennsylvania sent us this box full of hats and even a baby cocoon!

As you can see, the hats are a variety of colors, styles and sizes!

Her note reads:

It’s your friend Dee from Pennsylvania.  Here is another shipment of hats.  As always, made in smoke free, pet free home.  Everything is labeled as to fiber content and laundry instructions.

As I told you before, when I found you guys last year it was because I had a transplant and needed something to occupy my time while being isolated and restricted to home and visits from a select group of family and friends because of the possibilities of infection.  Along the way, I discovered what you wonderful cause is all about, all the people who help you achieve it and became so very important to me to be a small part of it.

It may be a while until my next shipment, we are packing up the house and moving to a retirement community, BUT I will be back!

Keep up the good work!

We are extremely grateful for our friends like Dee, who begin a hobby that gives back and makes this world a better place!

Thank you!  Thank you!

Wisdom from Jimi Hendrix

My father-in-Law often gave us wisdom in simple, yet profound terms, and this was one of his favorite quotes.


Castles made of sand will fall into the sea, eventually- Jimi Hendrix

In this day of social media, fake and attention seeking culture, this is a great reminder to build strong and sustainable foundations for yourself, family, and relationships.

Have a fantastic day!

Happy Diwali

Diwali’s theme is triumph of light over darkness and good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

Diwali is the five-day Festival of Lights and is traditionally celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains and is one of the most significant festivals in the Indian culture.


Growing up, this was a huge holiday for my home.  Tonight, I hope to bring the essence of the holiday into our home for my family.

Have a great evening!

November’s NICU Delivery


We sent 120 hats for babies in the NICU to Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach.  We are extremely grateful to everyone who contributed to this shipment- these hats came from far and near!  Our friends are just so awesome and always giving– they must be constantly making hats 24/7!    We would also like to thank the young teenagers who help with our labeling, from cutting and punching holes into the labels and then attaching them to the hats.   To our loyal friend, Ant, we owe you for constantly handling the logistics of sending out the monthly shipments as well as the financial aspect.  Shipping our 120 hats for 1 month’s delivery really takes great teamwork!

Being in the spirit of the gratitude during this Thanksgiving season, I am immensely thankful to everyone who supports, follows, participates and helps the Knitting Rays of Hope cause- spreading Hope, 1 hat at a time.

I am very proud that we will be able to touch 120 families with these hats during this holiday season!
