I crochet for special needs babies, along with a group of caring people; A Caring Hearts Project: Comforting Special Angels...Missouri Chapter.
I started crocheting baby hats many years ago, and donated them to my local, hometown hospital. They were just what the doctor ordered, so to speak. It was something that I could do to give back to my community, for the many things that I have been afforded in my life; such as good health, etc.. They were just the right size for premature babies. I have been making & sending them, for several years. I live many miles from there, now. From time to time, I try & send some preemie hats back to my hometown hospital out west.
Premature babies are born into this world, fighting to survive. Every breath is a struggle for them, as their organs aren't yet fully developed.
Would you consider making a Baby Blankie, Hat & Booties for these special needs babies? It would be so happily accepted, and used to warm a tiny premature baby here in Missouri, or in your own community.
You can use a pattern of your own choice, but; please make sure that you are using baby friendly colors, such as: white, soft white, baby pastels & baby ombre's. Links are offered below to free preemie patterns.
Donations of yarn, or completed preemie caps/blankies are always graciously accepted. When sending these completed items, please write "Preemie Caps/Blankies" on the outside label of the package, above your return address name. No time to crochet, but; you want to help out? Donate some yarn here, or to your local childrens hospital. Your loving gift will be appreciated more than you know.
Send Completed preemie caps and blankies to:
St. Johns Childrens Hospital
Attn: Auxillary Co-Ordinator
1235 E Cherokee St.
Springfield, Missouri 65804
