The return of summer brings a return of the CLICK for Babies Purple Hats campaign. We are once again collecting purple baby hats here at Wet Coast Wools, doing our part to bring awareness to the cause.
CLICK for Babies is an international project that brings awareness to the Period of PURPLE Crying, a normal period of increased crying that all infants experience in the first few weeks and months after birth. This inconsolable crying - which can be very hard on new parents - is considered the number one trigger for shaking a baby, often to a point of causing Shaken Baby Syndrome.
We are inviting all Knitters and Crocheters to help support this program by creating hats that will be given to babies in local hospitals and health units throughout November 2015. The requirements are easy, and suitable for all levels of crafter:
Please bring your completed hats to Wet Coast Wools by Wednesday, September 30th so that we can deliver them to Children's Hospital on time.
