Thank you to everyone who helped us with our "Under the Sea" campaign!
613 hats and over 250 toys were donated to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Egleston and Scottish Rite facilities. We thank the Atlanta Knitting Guild, Elephants Remember Joplin, and XRX, Inc for their support, and every single one of you who helped us brighten the day of these children.
Check out the interview with Marian Rose of the AKG, and Pam Haschke from Halos of Hope on Good Day Atlanta!
Final round voting to 'shave them all' tipped the scales so that Drew Emborsky, aka the Crochet Dude; Mark Moraca, owner, Kollage Yarns; and Benjamin Levisay, CEO of XRX, Inc., Stitches Expos and Knitters' Magazine all lost their hair in honor of all those who don't have a choice. Shaving honors were done by Anissa Ladd, National Sales Manager of the Connecticut Convention Center, Jason Bittner, from XRX, and Rick Mondragon, Editor, Knitters' Magazine.
Online and in-person voters raised over $6,000. $13,000 was contributed by our Hope Sponsors. An anonymous donation of $1,000 was made after the shaving to bring our overall grand total to $20,000. Over 64,000 additional hats will be sent out thanks to the generosity of those who participated in this campaign.
