1000 hats! You inspire us.

Nothing brightens our day more than a call or email from someone we don't know who wants to drop off hats and yarn for Team Yarn.


How did they find out about this work we're doing? Often we don't know. We just know they want to lend a hand.

It is remarkable when people who don't know either Amy or I want to contribute to this important work that Team Yarn does. It means so much to both of us. We're always a bit surprised when we get those emails and calls.

We're always a bit surprised and amazed when we tally up the total number of folks who have donated to this effort.

Today we realized that when we pick up the 3 bags of hats sitting at the Cambridge drop-site that more than 1,000 hats have passed through our hands, on their way to help cancer patients at 10 sites throughout Minnesota.

This whole journey has been amazing.

It is such an amazing thing to see others reach out and give.

You are all so very inspiring!

Ashley sent a surprise email the other night because she wanted to clean out her yarn stash. She brought it right over when Amy responded. Thank you!
A package from Alabama arrived on March 20.

Three bags of hats from Lorraine Hertges were delivered to the Cambridge drop-site earlier this month.
Joanna S. lives in Uptown and leaves her detailed and beautiful hats hanging on Amy's door for her to find when she returns. Wow.
