A little before Christmas, we gathered hats, scarves, and some lap blankets to deliver for December. We had 115 items altogether– 46 hats for babies, 3 lap blankets, 56 hats for child & teenaged chemo warriors and 10 scarves.
We want to thank everyone who helped make this delivery possible- the knitters, cutting and punching holes in the labels, attaching the labels to the hats, photographing and counting the hats, and the actual delivery! We also greatly appreciate your support and kind words!
Let’s keep going- Spread Hope, Love & Joy!!
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!
