One can make a difference.

One second, one minute, even one hour can change our lives. In one breath it can go from laughter and silliness to worry and stress.

I'm finding less time for myself to sew, run errands, to have one minute of peace ... So what can one do when there isn't enough time in the day?

Tie one on. Don't worry ladies this is still a family friendly blog - I mean tie some yarn on our needles or hooks. Make a hat, a blanket, booties ... or all for a baby in need.

You might be wondering if I'm running out of time how can I possible suggest this ~ I discovered that I could make one hat quite quickly. A nice fix for the need to knit or crochet.

So. Where to go from here. I don't know. I am looking for a home for my little red hat. Will you help me? Are you aware of any organizations that accept baby hats? I haven't had much luck searching the Internet. I did however discover Project Night Night via Simple Beans. I am going to share that lovely idea with an organization I am involved with and see where that takes us. But what about just one little hat? An organization (or many) that could use a hat here and there when I do find one hour of peace ... one can make a difference.

contact your local hospitals. most are in need of preemie caps. i know there was an organization that used to collect hats for that purpose, but i can't recall their name. i'll search and let you know.

the above link is to a group in washington that provides hats for babies in orphanages in places like vietnam and russia.

they have a charity button that can link you to an assortment of charities that would love your one minute miracles. hope these help

Like Queen of Everything, I was going to suggest your local hospital. All the babies get little hats when they're born. My youngest son was a sick little guy and went to a children's hospital off and on in his first year of life. I'm sure they would be happy to take hats in all different sizes for the kids.

I would say hospitals too.
Especially the neo natal department. They are always thankful for hats, mittens, jackets etc for prem. babies.
F+T were 9 weeks early and spent 6 weeks in neonatal. They were forever thankful for donations. Blankets are always welcome too.
