Purple Hats

The following information is from an email we received from Lynn Jackson, please consider participating in this worthy cause.

Dear knitters:

We need YOU! We invite you to put your terrific talent to work!

WHO: Please share your knitting (or crocheting) gifts to help us reach our goal to provide a PURPLE newborn baby cap to every infant born in North Carolina during the week of April 11th, 2010. This [PDF]flier has all the details.

WHAT: Help us raise awareness of a statewide education project designed to teach parents and other caregivers about the Period of PURPLE Crying: Keeping Babies Safe in North Carolina – the largest and most comprehensive evidence-based Shaken Baby Syndrome prevention initiative in the country.

WHEN: The deadline to send your finished baby caps is March 25th, see mailing address on flier or call/email with questions.

More info about The Period of PURPLE Crying:
The Period of PURPLE Crying: Keeping Babies Safe in North Carolina is designed to educate parents and others about the normalcy of increased early infant crying and how to cope with it. More than 5,000 nurses in hospitals across North Carolina have educated more than 140,000 parents about this important program, so far. Help us honor, thank, and celebrate our nurses and hospitals! By raising awareness and understanding, the Period of PURPLE Crying program seeks to significantly reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries that occur when frustrated caregivers shake crying babies.

Visit our website for more information on the Period of PURPLE Crying: Keeping Babies Safe in North Carolina: Please pass this information along to anyone you know who might be interested.
