I came across a post on the American Heart Association website about the Little Hats, Big Hearts program. In the post, I read the following information:
Volunteers for the American Heart Association are celebrating American Heart Month by knitting red hats for all babies born in February at participating hospitals. We’re raising awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country.
We need your help!Click on above link to learn more about the Little Hats, Big Hearts program.
If you knit or crochet and would like to participate in Little Hats, Big Hearts™, please click on your state, or the state nearest you, for more information on how to volunteer. If you do not see your state listed below, please send hats to the next closest state until we establish the program in your area.
Little Hats, Big Hearts™ started in February 2014 in Chicago, IL collecting 300 hats in the first year. The program has now expanded to 33 states. We are thrilled to have so many volunteers interested in Little Hats, Big Hearts™!
Thank you for making this program so special and for helping to spread awareness of heart disease and congenital heart defects.
