In our second month as a group, we loom knitted hats for patients going through chemo. Most of the hats are being donated to our local oncology centers. A few were donated directly to individuals in need. My car is packed and ready to bring the bulk of the hats that have not yet been delivered. I will be taking them to the local oncology center tomorrow morning. I have no words right now to describe how honored I feel to have such caring ladies, men, teens and even young kids around me. People that are giving their time to loom knit these hats. I expected we would have a large number of hats, but 200? And how exactly did we get exactly 200? Last month we had exactly 150 NICU baby hats and exactly 25 activity books. I had to recount each several times to make sure I wasn’t wrong.
I had each person turn in their donations in plastic bags, so I wasn’t able to get a photo of all of them together, but you can still imagine what 200 hats looks like. WOW!
Each of the hats were placed in their own bags to keep them clean. I wanted to put a card with our group info in each, but the cards are not here yet. Instead, I made stickers and put one on each of the bags.
Here are the ones that are going to be delivered tomorrow. These boxes are huge! I should have had my kids stand by the boxes to show the sizing. Say a prayer for each and every one that will be receiving these blessings.
I encourage those that are following our journey to reach out to your local community and see how you can help. No matter where you live, there is probably a cancer center within driving distance. If not, there are places that you can mail them to their location.
If you’d like to help us by donating items needed for our blessings, we have an Amazon wish list of these items: http://a.co/gxuv6jj. Any items will be shipped directly to me for use in the group.
Chemo caps are super easy to loom knit! Check out my YouTube channel for tutorials, here is one of my most popular ones:
