Twelve days of Christmas, 12 Hats – NICU Charity Challenge!

What a wonderful feeling to share this post with you all today. A very worthy cause is underway, starting today! The 4th Annual NICU Charity Challenge – 12 days of Christmas founded and hosted by Bonnie at Sunset Family Living – read all about what drives Bonnie to do the Challenge year after year here. Last year alone there were over 25,000 hats lovingly made and gifted to NICUs all over the world – this year it is expected there will be a great deal more – especially with your help!

Twenty incredible designers have each contributed patterns to this challenge that you’ll get simply for joining the challenge. These hats are adorable!! When you join the challenge, you’ll receive each of the patterns via email. You are welcome to use all of the patterns, only one of the patterns, or any combination of repeats (or your own patterns) to make your 12 hats. We ask that you share a photo of your finished hats with us before you drop them off to your local hospital/birthing center/NICU. You can post the photos to Bonnie’s Facebook page or you can email them to her. Photos will be posted on the blog and on Facebook so that all participants can enjoy the results. To receive the patterns and join the challenge, enter here to subscribe to the challenge patterns newsletter. You’ll receive a new pattern each day of the challenge, beginning the day you subscribe.NICU Charity Challenge - 12 days of Christmas by Sunset Family Living

Are you up for the challenge? Join me and the hundreds of other yarnists all over the world by simply signing up! So come join the Challenge and make up some tiny little hats for tiny little people who need to spend a bit of time in a NICU near you. If you don’t have a NICU facility nearby, Bonnie has a list of hospitals who will gladly accept your donation.

I personally will be proudly wearing two of the badges available for the challenge this year! A Featured Designer badge and an I’m Making Hats badge. The local Birthing Center in Roseville, California will be the recipient of my hats <3

Hats “on” to the wee ones all over the world spending time in the NICU!
