Caring with Crochet

I posted earlier about something I'm working on, something that will most likely be an ongoing project for me.  I'm almost finished with my first batch of caps. Originally I was going to make 10 caps, then after talking to the cancer treatment center I decided on 20, which would be 10% of their daily patient load. 
(They see over 200 patients a day)

When we went to get some Ziploc-type bags, the box had 25 bags in it. *sigh* 
So my count went to 25 caps. Right now I'm sitting at 22 and counting.

As you can see in the pictures, each cap has a card with washing and care instructions included. My daughter named all the caps; names like Tutti Frutti and Autumn Leaves. I like it and I hope the recipients will like it as well. 

And for that extra bit of hope the cards are from my church, something to let the recipients know that we are thinking about them, praying for them and loving them unconditionally. If more people would reach out in love instead of grasping at material things this world wouldn't be hurting as it is now.

Find a charity or a group that needs you and love others by helping, in any way you can. I've included links to some worthwhile groups that would love to have your help.

Charity does start with me . . . 
Say that to yourself and make a difference for others.
