Hats for Children for the victims of Domestic Violence

I decided a couple of years that I would like to make children who are the victims of domestic violence to feel special. These children are taken out of their homes and have to go to a school where they have no friends. I worried that the children in the school could tease the newcomers because they don't have a place they call home.

To help these children feel good about themselves, I decided to knit hats which I donate to the Rape and Assault center to distribute. Each hat is different, colorful and fun. I hope that instead of the other children making fun of them they would walk up to them and say "where did you get that hat", which would immediately make that child feel special.

Each year at Christmas, I donate a dozen or so hats.
