Caps to the Capital

Knitters and Crocheters for Newborns

"...four million newborns worldwide die each year in their first month of life...
Many... infants could be saved with simple,inexpensive items,like sterile blades to
cut umbilical cords,antibiotics for pneumonia and knit caps to keep them warm,
[Save the Children] said in State of the World's Mothers 2006.... Ninety-nine
percent of newborn deaths are in developing countries,where such items are
often not widely available.
The New York Times, May 9, 2006

Many of these deaths could easily be prevented with cheap interventions,such as
knit caps to keep newborns warm...
Associated Press, May 9, 2006

We mailed over 200 hats to Washington, DC for the 2006-2007 campaign!
