About

Do you knit or crochet? We need your help with Little Hats, Big Hearts!

#LittleHatsBigHearts is the American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association’s campaign, in connection with The Children’s Heart Foundation, to collect knitted or crocheted red baby hats. The hats will be distributed to babies born in hospitals across the country during February, which is American Heart Month.

Volunteers across the country are recruited to create the hats during the fall and early winter.

Las Vegas collection information:

Deliver to American Heart Association office by December 31, 2016 - 4445 S. Jones Blvd, Ste. B1, Las Vegas, NV 89103

Yarn Specifics:

  • Red
  • Cotton or Acrylic
  • Medium to heavy weight
