I couldn't be more excited to announce that I've decided to convert
Knitwise Colorado Creations into a non-profit organization......
Hats That Heal.
I'm currently in the initial stage of formation and have my 501(c)(3) status pending. I will continue to sell through Knitwise Colorado, however 100% of the proceeds will go to Hats that Heal.
Casting for Recovery
My first undertaking is a BIG one...I am providing 50 hats to Casting for Recovery, The mission of Casting for Recovery® is to enhance the quality of life of women with breast cancer through a unique retreat program that combines breast cancer education and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing.
If you know me...you know that fly fishing is near and dear to my heart...and like many of you, cancer has touched my life in many ways. I look forward to sharing my love of fly fishing and a very long union with Casting for Recovery
The mission of Hats That Heal is to provide, at no cost, hand-made knitted hats to charitable organizations whose purpose is to assist adults & families in need of support due to medical or financial misfortune.
Our knitted hats will be provided to those struggling with treatment induced hair loss from chemotherapy or other medical treatment. In addition, families experiencing financial difficulty and unable to afford adequate winter clothing, will benefit from our knitted hats.
Our colorful and unique hats provide warmth, comfort and dignity to those who have lost their hair due to a medical treatment or condition.
Low income families may not have the means to afford adequate winter clothing and will welcome the warmth of a fleece lined hat.
Each hat comes with a note of hope for healing, signed by the fabricator, to let the recipient know that their hat was personally made and a hope to overcome their challenging situation.
Keep posted, as there is more to come
as I progress through the formation of
Hats That Heal
