Caps for a Cause

I found out that Save the Children is sponsoring a charity drive to collect caps for babies in an effort to reduce the number of newborn deaths in impoverished countries (which is 4 million per year). The drive is running from now to February 28th. For more information and for easy, free patterns click here or go to a local craft store.

I know a lot of you out there can knit/crochet and so I thought I would post about this in case you wanted to help. I, unfortunately, am not gifted in this area but I wish that I was!

Printed a pattern and will get started on some caps! What a great cause...sort of odd that they refuse to accept machine made caps or any other baby item, but I suppose every little bit helps!

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29

Thank you for leaving a comment! I love receiving them and I read each and every one!
