Volunteers called on to knit tiny caps for newborns

Volunteers called on to knit tiny caps for newborns

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

Here in the Bay Area, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital is participating in the program.

It's part of their "Little Hats, Big Hearts" program to encourage moms to live healthy lives and help guide their children to do the same. We are thrilled to have so many volunteers interested in Little Hats, Big Hearts!

Find out where to send the finished hats by selecting your state from the dropdown menu here.

Tesla (NYSE:TSLA) Racial Bias Lawsuits 'Tearing Down Tesla'
In addition to the growing number of lawsuits the company is facing, a unionization campaign by United Auto Workers is underway. Overloaded with such allegations and lawsuits, Tesla is prepping to launch its semi truck on Thursday of this week.


There are sample patterns on the website too. While we love bows and buttons, they can come off the hats and be risky for the little ones.

Organizers recommend cotton or acrylic yarn that is medium to heavy weight and machine washable / dryable.

Hospital workers can get involved in the project too, they just need to contact their local office. The project has grown to include 660 hospitals in 40 states handing out more than 100,000 hats. The program that dons newborns with knitted red caps raises awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country, officials said in a written statement.
