We delivered the hats to our sweet friend Melissa, who will take them into St. Joseph’s NICU.  Hailey (Melissa’s daughter) and Jazlyn (my daughter) helped make this possible by sorting and labeling the hats.  We are so grateful for everyone involved and making a difference in the world.

We are planning another delivery for the children Cancer Warriors of CHOC for later this month in honor of Children Cancer Awareness Month!  And we also have Halloween around the corner, so if you want to make Halloween inspired hats, please send them to us by the beginning of October.

Thank you so much for everyone’s hard work and dedication!

19 hats for Babies in the NICU

Though we had a magnificent October delivery earlier this month, we didn’t want these little Halloween gems to have to wait until next year.  So we pulled together what we had for babies and made a delivery of 19 adorable hats, including the little pumpkins, candy corn and monsters.  We are working on our November delivery, in which we are hoping to focus on our precious children chemo warriors!  We know that making really cute baby hats are fun, quick and easy, but we have been told that our children chemo centers are not as well supplied as we had once thought and are severely in need, especially the older children and teenagers.  So for the next couple of months, if not longer, we are making every effort to fulfill this need and show love for our pediatric chemo warriors.  If you are interested in helping us out, please email us (link).

A nurse at the Kaiser Ontario NICU, Wanda sent us a message on Facebook that said,

I work at the Kaiser Ontario Nicu and just wanted to let you know how much the parents love the Halloween hats. Your hats are always adorable but you have outdone yourselves this time. Thank you so much. You have no idea how much you are appreciated.

We cherish the feedback and greatly appreciate that the parents are loving our hats!  Yay- Team Knitting Rays of Hope!!!

We wish everyone a safe and fun Halloween!
