Caps to the Capitol

In 2007 and 2008, my coworkers and I made baby caps for Save the Children's "Knit One, Save One, Caps to the Capitol". The purpose of this drive was to provide baby caps to mothers in the poorest sections of the world. Many babies do not live beyond the first 48 hours of life, because their mothers lack the skills, means and knowledge to keep them warm, fed and dry during this crucial time. I spotted an article about this upcoming drive and mentioned it to my coworker, Tammy Beers. She assisted me in contacting some interested coworkers and the first year we made 15 caps and sent them in. Word spread about what we were doing, and the second year we had 132 caps to send to Save the Children. We were ecstatic! It gives you a wonderful feeling to know that you helped babies and their mothers all over the world.
