Our friend, Donna from Washington reminds us with a lovely note and beautiful hats to celebrate success. She sent us these lovely hats for pediatric cancer warriors, some of the bravest lil’ guys you will ever meet!
Her note reads:
Hello, my friend! Enclosing 25 hats and they are being sent with gratitude for your mission… and your vision created years ago which has turned into such a success!
Vanessa and I were recently reminiscing when we started Knitting Rays of Hope in 2012, when we were trying to quickly loom knit hats while constantly motivating (and slightly pressuring) our small group of kind-hearted work friends to keep creating hats for our newly minted cause. How we longed for the days where hats would just be sent to us so we can have a stock on hand to distribute to the local hospitals — all to spread hope! We saw that if we kept going, just keep our fingers and yarn working that one day this would come- we would be established and have a steady supply. Because we firmly believed that people want to help and be a part of good! And we were Right!! Thank God!
And now we celebrate you for consistently believing in doing good in the world and making our vision of spreading hope a success!
Thank you! We are ever so grateful for our consistent friends who support us and provide a steady supply of hats that will be distributed to spread warmth, love, and hope! Our group of knitters expanded and reside in different states, but all have the common goal of spreading hope.
We owe any success to you– all of you, the consistent knitters, the first time contributors and those who support us with prayer and good thoughts & vibes!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Recently, we gave 132 hats to Melissa, our sweet and dedicated friend, to take to St. Joe’s and CHOC.
We are so grateful for those who made this possible! We are spreading hope and love with these thoughtful items!
Meredith in Washington sent us this box full of goodies!
We are so touched by her thoughtfulness and will include all of these items in our next delivery!
Thank you so much!
A while ago, Gail sent us these adorable hats.
We will get them ready to be delivered in our next delivery!
We are very grateful to all of our generous knitters! You are making a difference in this world!
Keep up the great work!
Late last month, we received this box full of hats from Sheri, who just learned how to loom knit.
Sheri included a note that reads:
I recently took up loom knitting to help after breaking my wrist. My sister told me about your program. I hope that you could use these hats.
These hats will bring lots of joy, warmth and hope to their recipients! We are very glad you found us and welcome to the World of Loom Knitting!
We recently received a box full of warm and adorable chemo hats from Utah.
These hats were made by a group of young women in St. George, Utah.
We appreciate them very much and are positive that they will keep chemo warriors warm in style!
Our friend Dee in Pennsylvania sent us a box full of these adorable hats a while back.
Her note reads:
It’s your friend Dee from Pennsylvania.
Selling the house in the city and moving to the more rural retirement community went a lot smoother than we expected and I found my looms quickly. Here is another shipment of hats. As always made in smoke-free, pet free home. Everything is labeled as to fiber content and laundry instructions.
I look forward to your posts and seeing how many people are sharing their wonderful talents.
Keep up the excellent work!
Thank you, Dee! We are so glad your move was not as difficult as expected and that you are settled in your new community! We greatly appreciate your hats and will send them in our next delivery. We are absolutely positive they will bring smiles to everyone’s faces as they did ours!
