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.

Thank you!

Encouraging a Giving Heart

Viviana

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.

Enclosed are 36 hats I have made- all machine washable and dryable & most are baby, toddler and child sizes.

Please let me know if you like them and can use them & I’ll get started on some more

I hope you can use these hats.  I really enjoy crocheting/loom knitting baby hats in my spare time and found your website.  This is a wonderful organization.  Thank you for giving of your time and resources for this great cause.

We are so proud of our entire team!  With this delivery, we have spread hope & love to over 4,000 families!  I am so proud of each and every one of you; without all of your efforts and love, none of this would be possible.  This month, Jazlyn coordinated the hats for delivery by tagging, photographing and counting them, and Melissa our delivery ambassador was crucial in picking the hats up and then delivering them to both hospitals!  If you contributed your hats to Knitting Rays of Hope, please know how wonderfully awesome you are and the impact you are making in the world!  Special thanks to our team– and what a special team they are!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!
