Red Baby Hats

This is for the  American Heart Association's Little Hats Big Hearts program.

Volunteers for the American Heart Association are celebrating American Heart Month by knitting red hats for all babies born in February at participating hospitals.  We’re raising awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country.

If you knit or crochet and would like to participate in Little Hats, Big Hearts™, please click on your state, or the state nearest you, for more information on how to volunteer.

If you are local to the Indianapolis area and do not have red yarn, let us know through our Contact Us page and we'll give you some, while supplies last.
