The muscle that helps
I am so grateful to everyone involved in spreading love and hope into the world with this delivery! I was especially proud that my son tries to help in areas that he can, with muscle for moving the deliveries and counting the hats!

We are so grateful to everyone who helped make this possible! From having the inspiration to make the hats, sending us the hats, and to my helpers who label, count and photograph the hats to the actual delivery– you are all a vital part of this process in spreading hope and love in the world! We are blessed because of people like you that want to make a difference!

Yesterday, my kids delivered 151 baby items to the Kaiser NICU in Ontario. This delivery included 130 hats, 2 headbands, 9 sets (that included hats and booties) and 10 booties– all perfectly sized for the wee little ones.
We want to thank you for contributing and making this possible! We love our community and how kind your hearts truly are!
Hope you have an awesome day!
Today September ends, and we delivered 175 hats for children cancer warriors to CHOC.
We are so grateful that you have chosen to support our cause and help us spread hope into the world! We know that these hats will delight all recipients, from the smallest toddler to the bravest teenager– thanks to you, we have a variety for our chemo warriors to choose from!
With some much to be done, I am so blessed to have 2 great helpers who help tag, count and deliver these hats! Without my 2 helpers, I wouldn’t be able to accomplish even half as much needed! I am so glad that they already see the need to Do Good in the world!
My 2 kiddos who help out without complaining! Teach them young to make a difference in the world!
Thank you to everyone who helped make this delivery possible!!
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.
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 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!
