Calling All Knitters! We invite you to join our mission: make a PURPLE newborn baby cap so we can give every baby born the week of April 11 a gift to coincide with the Week of the Young Child and Prevent Child Abuse Awareness month. Please share your knitting or crocheting skills to help Keep Babies Safe in North Carolina. Unite and lend your hands now to knit or crochet PURPLE newborn baby caps for this great cause. Create as many as you like – from five to 50, or any number in between, using any newborn baby cap pattern, and any color of soft, baby-friendly PURPLE yarn. Please spread the word to all those you know who knit and encourage them to also start knitting now! Please Note: If you are already part of this project through the NC Hospital Volunteers (NCHV) or as a volunteer at your participating hospital, please deliver your PURPLE newborn baby caps to the hospital for which you volunteer. If you have any questions, please contact Lyn Jackson: ljackson@purplecrying.info For all other knitters not associated with any hospital or hospital volunteer group: Please knit and mail your PURPLE newborn baby caps, as many as you like, to be received no later than March 25th to: Jill Hammergren The Period of PURPLE Crying at APT 1316 Mail Service Center Raleigh, NC 27699-1316 By knitting and sending PURPLE newborn baby caps to be given to infants across the state, you will make a difference as you: • Lend your hands to raise awareness about a life-saving project - the Period of PURPLE Crying: Keeping Babies Safe in North Carolina – that promotes crucial parenting skills, infant/parent bonding, and understanding of a typical early infancy stage that every baby goes through which is frequently misunderstood. • Participate in a growing, statewide grassroots effort to educate new parents about the normalcy of early infant crying and how to cope with the frustration that can accompany it. Assist in promoting the Period of PURPLE Crying: Keeping Babies Safe in North Carolina so that parents (and all others) learn to understand normal increased early infant crying and that crying is a key trigger to shaking. The Period of PURPLE Crying: Keeping Babies Safe in North Carolina is the largest and most comprehensive Shaken Baby Syndrome prevention project in the U.S. To learn more, visit: www.purplecryingnc.info – become a fan on our Facebook Fan Page, follow us on Twitter @PurpleCryingNC and for more information please contact ljackson@purplecrying.info
