A Special Delivery: Love In Action

In honor of his auntie, my son took in 19 adult hats for chemo warriors to the Oncology Unit that Wanda would get her chemotherapy during her battle with Pancreatic Cancer.

19 Adult Chemo Hats

Wanda passed on 12/27 five years ago, but it seems like yesterday.  It’s always a difficult day around here, and as we fought the tears back, we decided to push through, be strong and do things that she loved.  One of the things Wanda loved to do, was bringing in hats for chemo warriors.  I had just started learning how to loom knit and the hats I made were unquestionably “unique”, but Wanda would always be so kind and encouraging.  And the PR piece was almost always her– I was embarrassed – even with this blog as it sometimes seemed like we were bragging or tooting our own horn.  But she would ask- how can you raise awareness or make changes if nobody knows?  In her kind, patient but firm nature, Wanda pushed me to improve my hat making skills and to grow Knitting Rays of Hope.

Bryan-Delivery

Bryan took in chemo hats for adult chemo warriors at Kaiser in Ontario.

And with this last delivery for 2017, we are proud to say we have delivered 6,118 hats to chemo warriors and babies in the NICU!  We are so grateful for your continued support and generosity!  Thank you for making this world better and for spreading love and hope!

Thank you!

A Beautiful Goal Met and Exceeded!

Earlier this month, Donna from Washington sent us a box full of 34 hats for her final delivery for 2017.  She had a goal of sending 100 hats to Knitting Rays of Hope- which she exceeded for a total of 104 for the year!  We are amazed by her generosity, steadfast kindness and support!

Donna sent this cute card that reads:

Enclosing 34 hats for my final delivery for 2017!  I wanted to get one more in–so hard to stop, but I am a slow loom knitter!  Figured I best get this to you!
With love and warm wishes and a fervent thanks you for all you do!

We are so impressed with Donna having a goal of how many hats to make for charity and then exceeding that goal!  It’s almost time to make some New Year resolutions, and if you want to make one for making a difference in the world, please consider making a goal similar to Donna’s.

Thank you so much, Donna!

11 Hats for Teenaged Chemo Warriors

A bit ago, we received this box full of hats for teenager chemo warriors from Meredith in Washington.

We are so grateful for these hats and will be sure that these are included in our Christmas delivery.

We have been told that teenagers are often overlooked and greatly appreciate these sizes and styles to make everyone feel loved!

Thank you!
