Little Hats Big Hearts
We found this notification on the American Heart Association website. We will donate the hats we have collected to Selah's Grace, and continue to collect hats for this cause.
There is a substantial increase in the concern that babies who wear hats indoors have an elevated risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) due to the possibility of overheating.For many years, the American Heart Association worked with volunteers around the country to help babies and moms celebrate American Heart Month in a special way. Thousands of volunteers hand-crafted red hats for babies born in February at participating hospitals. The hats symbolized a shared mission of promoting the importance of heart-healthy lives for everyone through the Little Hats, Big Hearts™ program.
As a global force for longer healthier, lives the American Heart Association is committing to support programs that encourage the growth of all children to reach their full potential. While the Little Hats, Big Hearts™ program is ending, this does not change the American Heart Association’s unwavering commitment to fund and support Congenital Heart Defect research and programming.
Always in Stitches collects blankets made by the community. A group of sewists then attaches a label. We distribute the blankets to area hospitals, foster care, and advocasy centers throughout Hamilton County, Kokomo and Anderson.
We need Blanketeers (to make the blankets), Sewists (to label) and drivers (to deliver the blankets).
There is a day for the Sewists to work together the third Tuesday of each month.
