I shared this photo on my social media last week and that I was donating 24 hats to the local affiliate of Halos of Hope. You can check out the Nebraska affiliate’s Facebook page HERE. These were hats that I had been working on for nearly a year. And considering my shop was closed for 19 weeks in the past year (my shop closed mid-December and I take January off after the craze of the holidays, and I was also closed all summer for maternity leave). I figure that means I made 1 hat to donate every 10 days my shop was open during the past year!
If you have never been touched by cancer, count yourself both lucky and among the minority. My family and I have been touched by many forms of cancer including breast, prostate, and colon. Twice a year, I run a campaign for chemo caps in which I commit to make 1 hat to donate for every hat sold in my shop. I run it in October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and also in March for Colon Cancer Awareness Month. This year will be no different and I hope to make more hats this year than I did last year. And you can help me do that!
If you’d like to order a hat made by Colie’s Crochet, you can check out my Etsy shop and all I have to offer there. I also take custom order requests – you can send me a conversation or create a custom order from just about any page in my shop. Act quickly though, because I only have so many spots to fill from now until December 1st when I close my shop for holiday orders!
How do you like to give back? Volunteering, crafting, donating? Leave me a comment here or on any of my social media!
