We received a package filled with hats from the National Honor Society from Skyridge High School in Utah.
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.
We are so proud of everyone involved and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We received a box of hats made by the ROAM Club from Burroughs High School in Ridgecrest, California.
We always applaud when our youth get involved to make this world a kinder, better place. We are impressed with these hats and the level of difficulty and dedication found– you make us so proud!
These hats will keep babies and chemo warriors warm and feel loved!
Thank you for helping us spread hope, love, and warmth!
For the first portion of our delivery, we have 521 hats, 4 blanket sets (blanket and matching hats), 4 booties and 2 headbands for babies at St. Joseph in Orange County! We gathered, photographed, labeled and counted all the baby hats we received to put together this delivery. Then we delivered several bags full of hats to our sweet friend, Melissa to do the leg work and take them to St. Joseph’s.
We are grateful to all involved for making this happen! This is an amazing amount of love and hope!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Gail, from Washington recently sent an additional box that we truly appreciate!
Keep up the good work- winter is around the corner and these little heads will need warmth and cover!
Earlier this month, our good friend, Becky sent us a box full of these adorable hats of all different colors, sizes, stitches and styles!
Her note reads:
Sorry this has taken me so long to get these to you! I just kept thinking I would add a few more & then I would send it!
Well I guess I need to stop or it will never get sent! 🙂
I’m already starting on the next box! Hope you are all doing well!
Thank you so much for all your hard work & giving me this opportunity!
God Bless You All!

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!
A new friend, Gail in Bremerton, Washington sent us these adorable hats.
Gail included a note that reads:
I recently found your site online. I have been looking for a way to use yarn leftover from projects and started looming hats. Please accept these 10 hats of various sizes for your project. I hope they will be useful!
We are so glad you found us online and choose to donate to Knitting Rays of Hope. Your adorable hats will absolutely be used to spread love, warmth & hope in this month’s delivery.
My 9 year old daughter recently decided that she wanted to make hats to give to others in need. So I taught her how to use the loom and above are her recent creations. She has quite the eye for colors. She mixed yarn colors I would never had thought to do. She was definitely born with more artistic skills than I have. She is just beginning to hone her skills and I hope to see some more creations form her in the future.
So proud to have a daughter that has the desire to give back and happy that I can help to instill the importance of giving back.
Our good friend, Melissa recently took these baby items into St. Joseph Hospital in Orange County. It was a total of 93 items <16 blankets, 3 bootie sets, 1 cocoon and 73 baby hats>.
16 blankets for babies & 3 bootie sets
73 baby hats and a Sweet Pea cocoon
We are so appreciative that Melissa is willing to help distribute our donations. She is an integral part of the Knitting Rays of Hope Team and spreading love and hope! I am also grateful to my daughter who has tagged, photographed and organized all these items in preparation of this delivery! And finally, I extremely appreciate all the contributors to make this delivery possible!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Shirley in Massachusetts sent a box full of adorable hats and 4 beautiful cowl scarves for our next delivery.
Shirley’s note reads:
