A handmade cap can save a life!
My friend, Alison, told me about this organization called Save the Children and the project they were doing called Caps for Good.
From their website:
Baby caps are a simple and effective tool that can keep babies warm and ultimately contribute to reducing newborn deaths in the developing world.
I was intrigued! As a mom with two little ones who likes to knit, how could I not contribute to this worthy cause? How could I not want to help?
The site provides a simple knitting pattern (as well as a crochet pattern for you crocheters) and then explains what to do with the cap when it's done.
I'm excited to think my cap will help save a life! I really hope that it will keep a baby warm this spring.
