Knitting from the Heart

A benefit during heart month.


The residents of Lakeview Senior Living in Lakewood, Colorado, recently embarked on a knitting project to benefit the American Heart Association and The Children’s Heart Foundation, as part of its Little Hats, Big Hearts campaign. The seniors knitted 168 red baby hats. 

Nationally, the AHA set a goal to donate 6,000 hats to grace the heads of newborn babies born in February, American Heart Month. Started by a few moms in Chicago, this now-national campaign promotes heart-healthy living and raises awareness about congenital heart defects.
