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!

Her note reads:

I stumbled on your Facebook page and realized that I could finally use my excess baby yarn by making hats.

I hope you can find some warriors for these.

Love and Blessings.

Thank you!
