Tallgrass Creek Residents Knit and Crochet 75 Red Hats for Little Hats, Big Hearts

January 18, 2017

OVERLAND PARK, KS (January 18, 2017) -- Tallgrass Creek retirement community's Creative Hands group this week made 75 red hats for Little Hats, Big Hearts, a nationwide program to knit and crochet red hats for babies born in February at participating hospitals.


Little Hats, Big Hearts honors babies, moms, and heart healthy lives in a very special way. Supporters are knitting and crocheting red hats to be given out to thousands of babies during February American Heart Month in order to empower moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same.


The program is helping to raise awareness, provide resources and inspire moms to take their family's heart health to heart while also raising awareness about Congenital Heart Defects.


Little Hats, Big Hearts started in February 2014 in Chicago, IL, collecting 300 hats in the first year. The program has now expanded to more than 40 states.


The program is operated under the auspices of American Heart Association, in connection with The Children's Heart Foundation.
