Caps for Good : Paying it forward to help babies

Save the Children and the Warm Up America! Foundation are asking Americans across the country to pick up your knitting needles and crochet hooks to help save the lives of nearly four million newborn babies in the developing world. Get started today!

The Caps for Good grassroots initiative is running from September 2010 through February, 2011 and is encouraging citizens of all ages to participate by making a cap and advocating and fundraising to provide newborn care in developing countries.

Many Americans are looking to help people less fortunate in developing countries without writing a check --this is the perfect solution! The basic idea is to knit a simple baby cap, and save a newborn life. Knitting a baby cap is a simple and effective tool that can keep babies warm and ultimately contribute to reducing newborn deaths (which is 4 million per year) in the developing world.

Once the caps are completed, you can send the cap to Save the Children where they will then send them to their newborn health programs in Africa, Asia and Latin America. You will be able to view the progress of the caps online.

You can view easy patterns at Feel free to use your own pattern as well; you can even post your own patterns for other participants too!
