~ 'Knots of Love' ~


I received an email this morning from Sara Berrey in reference to 'Knots of Love' - a group that collects crocheted and knitted hats and headbands for cancer patients.

Here is what she wrote:

~~ A group of Google employees recently used "GoogleServe" Week to benefit local Newport/Mesa-based charity, Knots of Love. The charity works to warm the hearts and heads of cancer patients through hand knitted and crocheted caps and the Google group donated 101 caps toward the KOL cause.

The contribution of caps helped set a personal record for KOL of most caps donated and shipped out in one day: A total of 1,050.


Knots of Love is also in the middle of their annual Veteran's Cap Drive. The vet campaign is aimed at sending more KOL caps to Veteran's Affairs hospitals across the country. ~~   


Congrats to Sarah and her group.  :)

Here is the link if you'd like to visit the 'Knots of Love' site to get more information about the group:

  4. There are so many good and wonderful causes and so many good and wonderful people out there willing and able to participate. Several months before my husband was diagnosed with cancer I made up a bunch of chemo caps and donated them to a cancer center in a nearby town. They were so happy to receive them. There is always a "need" for the things we can make whether it be caps, mittens, lap blankets, etc......when I can get past the "wants" of my family members, then maybe I can get back into the "needs" of others. I am sure they are less demanding. I just consider it a gift from God and a joy to be able to make something useful for others no matter who they are. Thanks for sharing the links.
