I want to thank everyone who helped me reach my goal. I collected 139 hats, 10 scarves, 1 pair of fingerless gloves and even 1 sweater. I want to give a big shot out to everyone who donated (for ease, only Ravelry links are given) Mary, Heather, Kara, Johanna, Joelle, Benita, Alyssa, Carlee, Joyce, Amie, Betty, Kathryn, Susie, Kathy, Sue and anyone else who either I forgot or didn’t leave your name with hats. If I have forgotten you, please email me so I can add you to this wonder list of people.
This is what our efforts look like:
When I spoke with the woman at New York Cares, she was really impressed. When I told her I had 133 hats (that was my count at the time) she got really excited. She said she thought I might have 5 or 6, maybe 10 at the most. It feels really good to know that I have done something to make someone’s day a little better.
If you still have hats for me, don’t worry. I am going to do this again next year. So hold onto those hats. I think since I achieved my goal of 100 from July to Thanksgiving and I will be starting in January my goal will be 200. Now I just need to figure out a better way to store them. Have I mentioned I live in a studio?
