Make a difference in someone's life by making knit, crochet or sewn Happy Caps


Cause Areas

When

It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.

Where

This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.

We want our Happy Caps to be received as a gift from us so they are gift tagged and presented in a pretty basket for receivers to choose from.

About

Volunteers donate their time, knowledge and creativity by making hats and sleep caps for people suffering hair loss due to cancer treatment or another medical condition. Caps can be made by a volunteer who wants to work on their own time to create caps at their own pace, or by a volunteer who makes caps as a member of a group; such as a church, senior center or club and who may work individually or meet to create caps together. When you sign your tags you can sign with your name or the name of your group or both. When available we provide yarn that has been donated in support of our efforts. We provide gift tags for each hat, a presentation basket and we deliver to medical centers weekly.

You can even form a Happy Caps group in your area to serve your local cancer centers. We have our first chapter Blue Ridge Georgia now. If you would like to form a Happy Caps chapter in another part of the city or even in another city we will be thrilled to share marketing through our web site, guidance and Happy Caps gift tags.
