Donation Opportunities for Handmade Hats

There are so many great ways to give back by making hats & caps I wanted to share a post just about that! Almost all of these organizations will provide you will free patterns and instructions to work with for your donated items as well.
"Click for Babies is a grassroots initiative to collaborate with knitters and crocheters across North American to make PURPLE caps for babies. 

The initiative is being organized by the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome (NCSBS) in partnership with invited organizations in an effort to prevent infant abuse, namely Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma and educate caregivers about the Period of PURPLE Crying."
You can also find CLICK on facebook and twitter. 

 "Calvin’s Hats is a non-profit organization that represents volunteers dedicated to bringing healing, comfort, and peace to grieving parents of babies born too early. All supplies and labor are donated and there is no charge to recipients."

 There is also a new facebook page called Healing Heart Headwear concentrating on hats and headbands made for babies born with congenital heart defects.
Another great organization using hats to make a huge difference in the lives of many is Hats for Hunger
They can also be found on facebook.

Additionally, you can check out these other caring organizations,

So if you get on a hat making kick, just know, they can be used in a BIG way to make a difference in the lives of others all around the world! 

Oh yea, and Tricia from Busy Mom Designs has a little bonus offering going on over at her facebook page! It's called "Crochet-it-Forward" and if you donate a crocheted hat between now and Sept. 26th for donation she's offering you one of her darling patterns FREE!!!
