Inspired by NotJenny and Mama to Mama

I have a very special friend in my life that has inspired me in many ways since I've met her!
These hats for newborns are a result of the most recent inspiration from her! She told me about this project it Haiti, where there is a need for safe-birthing kits so that the moms and babies have a greater chance of a safe, clean birth. I must say, I'm not very knowledgeable of the many struggles that these countries have, and so whenever I am presented with an opportunity to learn more, I am all over it. Hence, the hats.
The Caps to Cap-Hatian Project is putting together safe-birting kits for expectant mothers in Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world. The site says, "These kits - consisting of plastic sheeting, hand sanitizer, a sterile piece of string and razor blade, and these newborn baby caps - have the potential to reduce infant and maternal mortality, and give babies a safer, healthier start."
I made 7 really, super cute hats under an hour. No fancy sewing, just 2 seams as you can use the bottom hem of the t-shirt. How much easier can a project be that can make such a HUGE difference in this world. God Bless those babies! And God Bless all those who are helping in any way to get these kits together and shipped off to Haiti.
