Volunteers needed to make special hats for newborns

Volunteers needed to knit crochet red hats for newborns

Little Hats, Big Hearts started in February 2014 in Chicago, IL collecting 300 hats in the first year.

The American Heart Association is calling on knitting and crocheting enthusiasts across CT to donate red knit or crocheted infant-sized hats to support the third-annual Little Hats, Big Hearts program. The organization has a database of participating hospitals and points of contact across the country. The American Heart Association hopes this empower moms and their children to live heart healthy lives and raise awareness about congenital heart defects.

And if you're not a knitter, they're also accepting donations of wool and yarn - it must be red, made of cotton or acrylic, medium to heavy weight, and machine washable and dryable. 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.
