I was recently contacted by a volunteer with the Southeast Affiliate of the American Heart Association regarding a special project that seems right up the NeedleNerds’ alley.
The AHA is looking for participants for its Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign. The Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign raises awareness of premature infant heart defects.
Essentially, what the campaign is about is knitting or crocheting red hats for newborns. The website includes several patterns you could use to knit or crochet the hats, and any hats should be mailed to the AHA by January 15, 2016. You could also contribute red yarn for this project.
I think it’d be nice if the NeedleNerds could contribute hats to this campaign….please let me know if you’d like to participate.
