July & August: Clicking with HAIN for Babies
For the months of July and August we will be taking part in a campaign to help bring awareness to Shaken Baby Syndrome by making purple hats. All hats must be donated to the appropriate hospital by October 1st. This is something new for HAIN, so not all hospitals are participating in this yet. Please visit
http://clickforbabies.org/index.php#map to find out states that are participating. If you are having trouble figuring out where to send finished items, please post here and I will be happy to help you.

States highlighted in purple are the ones currently participating. Click on your state or the closest one. Under contacts and events you will see various options. If you are local you can select local contact, or if you aren't local select mail caps and addresses will pop up on where you can mail hats too.

Crafting Guidelines:


Please use soft to the touch yarn.
The sizing needs to be newborn (head circumference 13-15" and about 4-6 in high)
Hats need to be 50% or more of any shade of purple. Consider darker purple with stripes of blue, orange, green or gray for baby boys.
Please do not attach decorations ( pom poms, tassels, ribbon, bows or buttons.


Be sure to attach a label to all donations.

The info below should be emailed to Elaine so she can keep track of donations.

To help me keep up with when a donation is made to center or hospital on our spreadsheet, please email me information about your donation.  All you need to do is copy and paste the information below into a blank email. Fill it out with all your information and email it to HAINCharitySec@gmail.com .  That is all you need to do.

I pulled up their website to find locations. The closest to me is NJ but there isn't a hospital listed. Do we send them to the address provided on their site, or are all the hospitals in NJ participating?

Diana....

I'm in Pennsylvania and possibly this may be the closest for me also.  I copied the address.  I have six little purple (mauve, lavender, etc) hats finished so far and one on the needles.  Plus yarn for some more after that.  If you have another address for me that would be better, let me know.  The patterns are cute and they go really fast.  Thanks for your help.

PegK, if you want to send to the same place that is fine.
