Volunteers needed to make special hats for newborn babies

American Heart Association needs people to make hats for babies

The American Heart Association seeks donations of knitted or crocheted infant-sized red hats for its annual Little Hats, Big Hearts program, which aims to raise awareness for congenital heart defects.

It gives thousands of hats to newborn babies during February, American Heart Month.

They'll be given to babies born in February at participating hospitals in the hope of empowering mothers to look after their heart health and encourage their children to do the same. We are thrilled to have so many volunteers interested in Little Hats, Big Hearts!

The American Heart Association and The Children's Heart Foundation co-fund the Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards.

Organizers are asking for red cotton or acrylic yarn that is medium to heavy-weight and machine washable/dryable.

Now, however, the campaign has expanded to more than 40 states.

Since the program started in 2014, more than 90,000 hats have been distributed to families in hospitals in 42 states, according to a the AHA website.

The program also helps raise awareness about heart defects.
