Plenty Purple Packed

Putting the finishing touches on our biggest donation to the Purple Cap Campaign! This is a fantastic initiative put on by Click for Babies has been in hiatus for the past two years but hasn’t stopped some of our charity hat knitters to keep right on clicking! We have confirmed that hospitals are again requesting some hats for gifting to the families of newborns and we are at the ready with this donation of… count them… 311 tiny hats!
Their goal is to give out a tiny purple hat to every baby born in the province of BC during the month of November which helps to raise awareness about the Period of PURPLE Crying and prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome. We hope this will spur their efforts along!

Baaad Anna’s and its community has been participating in purple hat knitting for much of its entire 12 years in business. Here’s some lovely posts from the way back machine, and even further still!

We will continue collecting and redistributing them via BC Children’s Hospital‘s Prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome BC group; if you are in need of purple yarns let us know as we always set some aside from our upcycled donations. In fact many of these 311 hats were made by a single member of our community that pops in weekly for any purple yarns we have collected! Drop by any completed hats during our regular business hours and we will be happy to include them in our next delivery! And keep on crafting!
