Calling all knitters and crocheters to knit or crochet purple baby hats by September 29th. Every day infants are shaken and abused because the person caring for them becomes frustrated with their crying.
Click for Babies is a North America initiative to help educate caregivers about normal infant crying, how to cope with crying, and the dangers of shaking an infant.
Period of Purple Crying Caps campaign, organized by the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome, in partnership with hospitals, public health and child abuse prevention groups to create awareness of the leading cause of infant death.
For more information on Period of Purple Crying go to clickforbabies.org. The site has free patterns for knitters and crocheters.
We will be dedicating Thursdays from 1-3pm during the month of September to knitting purple baby hats. Please come and join us for this worthy cause.
