Our good friend, Gail in Washington sent us these adorable hats.
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!
We received these wonderful hats from our dear friend Nancy. We were so overwhelmed with joy when she contacted us to let us know that she was back to work on all of these wonderful hats. She told me that her husband came accross her yarn stash and told her she needed to get rid of some of it. We are glad he did as pictured above is the result of her purging. She even has a new idea for creating a security octopus for our NICU warriors and she is working on those for her next donation. We can’t wait to see her new creations as she is such a talented crocheter.
If anyone else feels the need to purge some of their yarn they have stashed away we would love to take the creations off your hands:)
To kick off September, we delivered 172 hats to St. Joseph’s Neo-Intensive Care Unit! Thank you to everyone who made this delivery possible! We have delivered 5,499 hats in total since we began!
We delivered the hats to our sweet friend Melissa, who will take them into St. Joseph’s NICU. Hailey (Melissa’s daughter) and Jazlyn (my daughter) helped make this possible by sorting and labeling the hats. We are so grateful for everyone involved and making a difference in the world.
We are planning another delivery for the children Cancer Warriors of CHOC for later this month in honor of Children Cancer Awareness Month! And we also have Halloween around the corner, so if you want to make Halloween inspired hats, please send them to us by the beginning of October.
Thank you so much for everyone’s hard work and dedication!
Our good friend, Helen stopped by to drop off a bag full of these hats in various colors and sizes, so that everyone will feel loved!
We are so appreciative of our generous and busy friends, who seem to always have charitable mindset! Keep up this great work!
Earlier this month, a new friend, Dawn from New Jersey sent us these goodies!
Her letter reads:
Enclosed are some hats I would like to donate to your organization. I am new at loom knitting and hopefully the next batch that I send will be a little more professional.
I live in a smoke-free, pet-free environment. I think what you are doing is fantastic
These are perfect and so good for being so new! We thank you for following our criteria so that these hats can be sent in our monthly deliveries that will commence very soon. We look forward to your next shipment! 😉
I hope that the tutorials page is helpful. If we need to update that and add some other videos (made by others), please let us know!
Last month, we received a box full of colorful hats from our good friend, Donna in Washington State.
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!
A new friend, Laurie sent us a box a little bit ago full of these hats.
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!
