The ladies of Grace Chapel Church in Leipers Fork have been busy. Collectively, they knit over 500 caps for newborn babies as part of Save The Children’s Knit One, Save One campaign, and donated an additional 500 machine-made caps as well. Senator Frist even showed up at their church to recognize their dedication to the project.
Save The Children’s Knit One, Save One campaign urges those of us privileged enough to have warm clothes and a roof over our head to share a little, by knitting or crocheting simple, tiny hats that could save the life of a newborn baby in a developing country. This year’s deadline for sending a hat has been extended to January 31, so there’s still time to dust off those knitting needles and get to work! Most of the caps should take even a beginner knitter less than a couple of hours. Participation information & Action Kit here.
So if you’re cold in Nashville today, consider warming up your hands and whipping up a cap for Knit One, Save One. And if you can’t knit, well, that’s okay too – a storebought cap is just fine.
