Where can I send preemie caps?
I had read about a charity that provides tiny caps for newborns in third-world countries, where often not having a hat could mean less resistance to fatal illnesses. However, I lost the address and cant find it again!

I made about a whole bunch of caps and I really want them to go to good use. Please help!

Thank you!

Caps for Preemies
You might want to check the website for "Save the Children" in Westport, CT. They had a very successful "Caps for the Capital" Project that addressed this very issue. I haven't checked the website recently, but I'm sure you could get some direction from them.

If that doesn't work, I have a soldier contact in Afghanistan who works with the locals and supplies my/our knitted items to children in orphanages. You can send me a PM and I will give you my address and I will forward your items along with my own.

Thanks!

Gail M.

Thanks Gail, that was exactly the original organization I was looking for. I'll send them there.

A note of caution, though: please do not offer to give out your home address to anyone on the internet. I am a safe person, but you never know what type of crazies there are out there, even in this forum!

Thanks again for your help!
