ORGANIZATION: Knots of Love, Inc.

Knots of Love
Warming hearts & heads.

Help provide warmth and comfort to people going through cancer treatment by knitting or crocheting lovingly handmade hats for them.

Since 2007, people just like you have lovingly hand-knitted and/or crocheted over 550,000 handmade creations for our unknown friends across the U.S. who are fighting for their lives.

In 2013, we expanded our mission to also deliver and give tiny hand-knit or crochet 18" x 24" NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) blankets for struggling new lives in ICU incubators.

Every hat, every blanket makes a big and loving impact.

Help us reach and support thousands of more people undergoing treatment for cancer effects of chemotherapy and/or babies in NICUs across the country and join in our mission today.

Visit http://www.knotsofslove.org, where you'll find a how-to-get-started guide, 100+ free knit and crochet patterns, and hat starter kits if this is your first venture into fiber art!

Thank you for your consideration and kindness!

Mission Statement

Founded in 2007, our mission at Knots of Love is to warm the hearts and heads of people going through cancer treatment by lovingly hand-knit and crocheted hats for free.

Description

We distribute over 4,000 lovingly handmade creations each month to children, women, men, and veterans through our network of over 580 cancer treatment centers, infusion centers, hospitals, and oncology offices in all 50 states.

With the kind help of people just like you, we have gifted over 550,000 handmade creations to people in need of some love and warmth.

We hope for a day when our services will no longer be needed, but until then we work tirelessly to distribute these gifts of love -- as a kindness to our recipients -- who continually tell us that our hats not only provide warmth as they go through treatment but more importantly, these gifts give them love.
