It just takes a simple package of basic health measures provided to mothers and babies.[/FONT][/COLOR] [COLOR=#4C2A05][FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]One of these measures is keeping a newborn warm. That's where you come in.

Here is one more for the campaign:)
Thanks Rita,your hats are always sooooo cute:cheering:
I would like to participate in this, as well. I have downloaded the action sheet. I can’t figure out how to add a second button to my siggy, 'tho.
MoniDew- click on button save to your computer and then add to signature.
Sorry I haven’t added any hats but I have been busy knitting mini socks for our troops.Will get some hats done in the next couple of days:teehee:
One more for the cause
I’m new to the forum and just heard about the Knit One Save One campaign. I wanted to make a personal goal to make 100 hats before the end of the year. I invited some friends (some who had never knitted or crochet before) and they are all hooked. There are about 10 of us working on the project now and I feel very optimistic that we will meet our goal.
My school group is also knitting for the Knit One, Save One project for Save the Children. Check Knit One, Save One website the week of November 19th for updates that will include video message from some of my students. So far we have knitted about 170 baby caps!
We are planning a “Stitch-In” open to those in the Louisville, Kentucky area to knit baby caps for this project on Saturday, December 13th from 10 am to 2 pm. Check my group’s website for more details as we get closer to the date. http://www.stitchforacause.org
Need motivation to join in? Save the Children estimates that 4 million newborns in developing countries die each year, 1/2 within the first 24 hour for PREVENTABLE causes, including hypothermia. Knitting a small cap may take you only an hour, but really can save a life!
I forgot to post that the Canadian campaign is now up and running.
However I received an email saying that they are looking for sweaters or blankets rather than hats. They already have lots of hats.I am going to send some hats anyway as I don’t have the time to knit sweaters.
Does anyone know the [B]actual mailing address[/B] that I can use to mail the hats that I knitted?
Currently, I can only use the public library and you can’t download anything on their computers… which is what the knit one save one… website wants you to do-- to get more information.
Could someone PM me with the mailing address? I was only able to knit 3 hats… but, I do want to mail them before the deadline.
