*Expired* Click for Babies: Knit to Stop Shaken Baby Syndrome

by Freebies4Mom on October 4, 2011 1:25 pm

Sorry, no longer available but see more current ways to Donate 4 Free at Freebies 4 Mom. There is a time in an infant’s life called The Period of Purple Crying.  It is that time between 2 weeks and 4 months where babies cry for hours at a time for no apparent reason.  It is also a time of elevated cases of Shaken Baby Syndrome.  Click for Babies is an organization that tries to raise awareness with new mother’s about the dangers of Shaken Baby Syndrome.

The organization asks that you knit at least 5 purple newborn baby hats and send them to a participating hospital.  The goal is to get as many hats as possible to these hospitals by November 1, 2011 so that new mothers can have them for their newborns.  There are instructions and patterns on how to knit or crochet the baby hats on the Click for Babies.

Lori Pace at A Day in Motherhood wants to help you knit your hats and is giving the reader that knits the most hats and delivers them to a participating hospital $15  $30 in Paypal cash to help pay for their yarn.  Please see her giveaway for entry requirements.

I now wish I knew how to knit. So I will just spread the word to people I know who do knit.
