American Heart Association seeks little hat donations

American Heart Association seeks little hat donations

February is American Heart Month, and the American Heart Association is searching for volunteers to help knit, or crochet, red hats for babies born during the month as a part of their Little Hats, Bit Hearts program. Data from studies show the rate of children born with a minor heart problem is increasing, and about one in four infants born with a heart defect is born with a critical one.

They'll be given to babies born in February at participating hospitals in the hope of empowering mothers to look after their heart health and encourage their children to do the same. For any questions about Little Hats, Big Hearts in CT, please contact Lisa Neff, Lisa.Neff@heart.org or 203-295-2954. We are thrilled to have so many volunteers interested in Little Hats, Big Hearts!

- If you've got knitting or crocheting skills, the American Heart Association wants your help to keep newborns warm. The program is now in more than 40 states.

Cavill has said that anyone who watches the film will be able to associate with the superheroes due to their humane traits. A Dark Knight who tends to do things solo, Batman is "the glue that holds them all together", Affleck says.

Little Hats, Big hearts began in Chicago in 2014.

"Thank you for making this program so special and for helping to spread awareness of heart disease and congenital heart defects", the organisers say. The AHA is also accepting donations http://www.heart.org/littlehatsbighearts to support the program, including yarn, for those who would like to contribute but don't knit or crochet.
