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.
Our dear friend, Donna in Washington sent us these hats.
Her note reads:
Happy New year- and so happy to be able to send you 25 hats.
Thank you for all you do! IT is just such a joy to help and to hear what the Knitting Rays of Hope community is doing too.
I appreciate your posts!
We are so thankful for friends like Donna!
Human Rights Day is observed on December 10th every year. It was on this day, that the UN adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.
The UN website (link: http://www.un.org/en/events/humanrightsday/index.shtml) states that there are universal values and a common standard for all peoples and all nations:
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all. The principles enshrined in the Declaration are as relevant today as they were in 1948. We need to stand up for our own rights and those of others. We can take action in our own daily lives, to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human beings.
- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all.
- Human rights are relevant to all of us, every day.
- Our shared humanity is rooted in these universal values.
- Equality, justice and freedom prevent violence and sustain peace.
- Whenever and wherever humanity’s values are abandoned, we all are at greater risk.
- We need to stand up for our rights and those of others.
Racism, xenophobia and intolerance are problems prevalent in all societies. But every day, each and every one of us can stand up against racial prejudice and intolerant attitudes.
Be a human rights champion, fight racism and Stand Up for Human Rights!
We are truly grateful for all of you— you make us a great and loving community, who spread hope and love into this world!
We are blessed to be able to put our love into action! And only because of your continued support, knitted contributions, donated time, kind words, thoughtful encouragement, and donations, we are able.
We hope that your holiday is full of love and hope, some delicious food, laughter, hugs, and fun!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!
