Save the Children Holiday Gift Idea~Book Giveaway

Save the Children has the perfect holiday gift idea this season for the crafters of America -- knit a cap and save a life. American moms want to get behind helping moms in other countries and are looking for ways to help besides writing a check. Baby caps are 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.

If you knit, then you can create and send a cap to Save the Children where they will send them to newborn health programs in Africa, Asia and Latin America. By clicking here, you can also see stories about how these caps make a difference in the lives of mothers and children around the world.

By knitting a newborn cap, the American public now has an easy way to help those less fortunate and “see where the good goes”.

Save the Children would is offering you a chance to win an autographed book, “Shall I Knit You a Hat: A Christmas Yarn”, written and illustrated by sisters Kate Klise and M. Sarah Klise. 

Shall I Knit You a Hat? A Christmas Yarn

Here is a summary of the book (from Save the Children):

Knitting is such a popular pastime these days, it's no surprise that after Mother Rabbit hears there's a blizzard on the way, she knits a woolly blue cap to cover Little Rabbit's ears. Little Rabbit then suggests making Christmas presents of hats for their friends, and he distracts the horse, the goose, and the others while Mother measures for the chapeaus. Working feverishly (and with Little Rabbit's help), Mother finishes the hats, which are silly and cumbersome as well as very cute, just in time. The recipients' initial response is underwhelming, but after the snow starts flying, the animals quickly become appreciative. Young ones may not understand why there's no thank you from the animals at first, but even missing this point won't diminish their enjoyment much. The acrylic artwork glows with humor and radiates warmth. The design features a varied layout that finds full-page pictures loaded with details juxtaposed with spreads and pages decorated with cameo art.

Buy It Here: The book is available at bookstores and from Amazon.
