are celebrating American Heart Month by knitting red hats
for all babies born at participating hospitals in February.
They are raising awareness of heart disease,
the number one killer of Americans.
Congenital heart defects
is the most common type of birth defect in the country.
Little Hats, Big Hearts™
started in February 2014 in Chicago, IL
collecting 300 hats in the first year.
The program has now expanded to 29 states.
If you are interested in participating check out the website,
enter your state and you will find a contact person/name.
Friends of mine volunteered to help knit.
I received some of the hats today.
Thank you JoAnn and Jane for your participation.
I will continue knitting these Little Hats in 2016.
Hopefully I will knit more than the 'one' I did this year.
