My mother and son went to deliver some hats to Loma Linda University Hospital. For this delivery, we were able to contribute 162 children & teenager cancer warrior hats and 66 hats for babies!
162 hats for pediatric cancer warriors
66 hats for babies
We are so grateful to everyone who helped make this possible! From having the inspiration to make the hats, sending us the hats, and to my helpers who label, count and photograph the hats to the actual delivery– you are all a vital part of this process in spreading hope and love in the world! We are blessed because of people like you that want to make a difference!
With this delivery, we have delivered over 8,000 hats to date!
Our good friend Loretta in New Jersey sent us these hats and a blanket.
We are so grateful and will include these in our next delivery!
Our friend Bailee from Auberry, California sent us these hats and headbands.
Her note reads:
Thank you for all you do!
We appreciate your generosity and are grateful that you want to spread hope and love into this world!
From Earthday.org website:
Nature’s gifts to our planet are the millions of species that we know and love, and many more that remain to be discovered. Unfortunately, human beings have irrevocably upset the balance of nature and, as a result, the world is facing the greatest rate of extinction since we lost the dinosaurs more than 60 million years ago. But unlike the fate of the dinosaurs, the rapid extinction of species in our world today is the result of human activity.
The unprecedented global destruction and rapid reduction of plant and wildlife populations are directly linked to causes driven by human activity: climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, trafficking and poaching, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides to name a few. The impacts are far reaching.
If we do not act now, extinction may be humanity’s most enduring legacy. Here are some quick facts on the current wave of extinction and additional information about this problem here.
All living things have an intrinsic value, and each plays a unique role in the complex web of life. We must work together to protect endangered and threatened species: bees, coral reefs, elephants, giraffes, insects, whales and more.
The good news is that the rate of extinctions can still be slowed, and many of our declining, threatened and endangered species can still recover if we work together now to build a united global movement of consumers, voters, educators, faith leaders, and scientists to demand immediate action.
Earth Day Network is asking people to join our Protect our Species campaign. Our goals are to:
Educate and raise awareness about the accelerating rate of extinction of millions of species and the causes and consequences of this phenomenon.
Achieve major policy victories that protect broad groups of species as well as individual species and their habitats.
Build and activate a global movement that embraces nature and its values.
Encourage individual actions such as adopting plant based diet and stopping pesticide and herbicide use.
My mother and son made a special delivery to Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital of the 75 fleece blankets that Frances made and donated to us (a post about Frances).
Frances and all the blankets she made!!
All 75 blankets!

We are so grateful to be able to spread love and hope in new and creative ways! These blankets were warm and super cute and will absolutely bring smiles, making someone feel extremely special.
Robin, our good friend sent us these hats.
Her note reads:
Blessings for those in need!
I’m grateful for the opportunity to help!
Thank you, Robin!
True friendship is seen through the heart, not through the eyes.
Love is Important
By Jean Kay
Love is so important
in everything we do.
Love brings out the very best
in every point of view.
It’s easier to be loving
than to hold on to a grudge.
We get stuck in negativity
and our ego will not budge!
Experiences, good and bad,
will always come and go,
being able to love regardless
is how our spirits grow.
Love works in mysterious ways
to soften any concern.
Giving love away freely
reaps loving rewards in return.
How wonderful and magical
we feel when we’re in love.
We truly are on top of our world-
there’s nothing we can’t rise above!
Let’s turn all negative thinking
into positive, loving thought
by spreading love, joy and peace
as, for thousands of years, we’ve been taught.
