40 hats in 40 days 2014

Today begins this year's 40 hats in 40 days project.  It's something I started a few years ago as a way to honor God by using the abilities He has given me to bless others.  I wanted to take a minute as we begin to tell you about the organization I donate my items to, God's Tiny Angels.



God's Tiny Angels, or GTA as I refer to it, grew out of the desire of one woman's heart to bless the families with children staying in the local NICU hospital.  Danette LeMaster began making and donating items in the Fall of 2009.  Since then the ministry has grown to include 34 hospitals in 19 states and hundreds of volunteers!  GTA is not a non-profit organization, it is not registered with any government agency, it is simply people across the country seeing a need and sharing their talents to meet it.  The cost of all materials and shipping is shared by those who donate, which often means that Danette uses her own money to ship the donated items to hospitals.  I have had the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times and I can tell you, she is genuine in her love for the children and families she assists.

If you are interested in donating items to God's Tiny Angels, please visit the website at www.GodsTinyAngels.com.  There is also a Yahoo Group here where they share the current needs.  And, as most organizations, they are on Facebook here.

It is my hope that over the next 40 days you are inspired to donate to an organization that reaches out to others, to share your talents and bless others with them.  It doesn't have to be GTA.  Pray about it and ask God to lead you to where your skills are needed.

Come back on Friday to see the first set of hats, and for the free patterns!

Until next time,

I've been reading every post you may have written under "40 hats in 40 days" title.
I was looking for free hat patterns that's how I got there, and happy to find many many patterns owing to you.
Thank you very much !!!
I knit some angel nests and tiny hats for an association like your GTA called "les bouts d'choux"
Did not make forty, but I'm on the way ☺

I'm now on the "unisex reversible baby hat.

Thank you again,
