Breast Cancer Awareness Month is just a few short weeks away, so it’s time to do what I can, what you can, to help spread the word. Last October I donated a small percentage to Susan G. Komen just by getting a pink hair extension put in my hair. Salons all over the country were offering this pink extension for a $10 donation and you were able to leave it in your hair for as long as you’d like. Last October at STITCHES East Drew Emborsky, aka The Crochet Dude, Ben Levisay and Mark Moraca had their heads shaved to help the Halos of Hope Foundation. They received over $20,000 in donations allowing over 68,000 chemo caps to be sent to cancer centers around the country.
This year, Drew is challenging you, your friends and family to make and send in, as many chemo caps as you can possibly work up. Whether you knit or crochet, Halos of Hope is accepting handmade hats to help the cause. You have from now until November fifth to send these hats in. There are guidelines they suggest you follow for the best outcome.
In need of patterns? No problem.
