The American Heart Association from Atlanta, Georgia sent us 4 boxes full of red baby hats, which is the largest shipment we have ever received! The hats are all red, but different sizes and styles to raise awareness for February, which is American Heart month!
We were quite surprised and amazed by how many hats were shipped to us! We will start counting, labeling and getting these ready for the deliveries.
Thank you for finding us and thinking of sending these to spread hope and love!
A little bit ago, our dear friend, Melissa was able to deliver 175 items to the babies in the NICU at St. Joe’s in Orange County. The delivery included 110 red hats, 64 hats of various styles and colors, and 1 pair of baby booties.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this delivery, by making the hats, labeling and photographing the hats to delivering the hats! We are so grateful that you are committed to spreading hope and love!
We received a package filled with hats from the National Honor Society from Skyridge High School in Utah.
We are so impressed when youth get involved in making a difference in the world- showing compassion and love for strangers is a lesson that few understand until much later in life.
We are so proud of everyone involved and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We received a box of hats made by the ROAM Club from Burroughs High School in Ridgecrest, California.
We always applaud when our youth get involved to make this world a kinder, better place. We are impressed with these hats and the level of difficulty and dedication found– you make us so proud!
These hats will keep babies and chemo warriors warm and feel loved!
Thank you for helping us spread hope, love, and warmth!
A new friend, Barbara from Georgia made 110 red baby beanies in various sizes and styles for the American Heart Association. She later found out that they had discontinued this project and sought us out! Aren’t we lucky she did?
We will donate these red sweetheart hats in honor of today, Valentine’s Day to a local NICU to spread love and hope!
Barbara’s note reads:
These are the hats as per our email conversation.
Hope they work
Any feedback would be welcome.
Hope to make some adult hats now.
We walk in faith and believe in God’s plan. We are grateful you found us and hope that you will continue to want to contribute to Knitting Rays of Hope!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
A new friend, Wendy in Utah sends us these adorable hats and booties for babies.
Wendy’s note reads:
Please find enclosed a number of hats and a pair of baby booties. The hats are of various sizes. I am glad to have found your site where I can send donations. I have some new yarn, and left over yarn and wanted it to be put to good use, and to make good use of the spare time I have. My home is pet-free and smoke-free. I have taught myself to knit and find it therapeutic with stress relief as well, so it’s a win-win thing going on here. I love seeing all the various projects you post on Facebook and I thought, “Finall, now I know where to send my work!”
We are so glad you found us and sent us your creations! Thank you for helping us spread hope and love into the world.

Our new friend, Waleska, founder of Misión en Movimiento- Lil’heads Warm & Feet Looking Chic sent us these adorable slippers and shawls.
Her note reads:
Greetings! My name is Waleska, founder of MIsion en Movimienta, Making Lil’ Heads Warm- Fee Looking Chic. I started this mission 5 years ago, sending St. Jude Children’s Hospital crochet beanies and slilppers. Then helping other Missioners with different articles like flip-flops, school supplies and more, reaching countries like India, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
I am feeling very blessed and thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of your mission/project.
I started crocheting years ago as a hobby, then learning it was a Call to Help others.
That’s how it turned into a Mission. ❤
I’ll love to keep having the opportunity to crochet for your mission. Count on me if so!
You can look me up on Facebook and see what I do
