Volunteers Wanted To Knit Red Hats For Babies

14 November 2017

The organization is teaming up with The Children's Heart Foundation to mark American Heart Month in February with "Little Hats, Big Hearts". The hats are distributed to babies with and without heart defects.

They'll be given to babies born in February at participating hospitals in the hope of empowering mothers to look after their heart health and encourage their children to do the same.

Volunteers are needed to knit or crochet little red hats.

Donated hats should be dropped off or mailed by December 1, to the American Heart Association, ATTN: Little Hats, Big Hearts, 5 Brookside Drive, Wallingford, CT 06492.

Now, however, the campaign has expanded to more than 40 states. They also recommend simple hat patterns and caution against bows and buttons that can come off the hats, posing a danger for the little ones.
