We are asking TPP volunteers to make 500 NEWBORN SIZED PURPLE HATS for the 2017 Iowa Click for Babies Campaign!
The goal of the CLICK for Babies campaign is to increase awareness and educate others about the Period of PURPLE Crying that all infants go through, how to respond to prolonged crying, and the importance of never shaking your child – all in an effort to prevent the shaking and abuse of infants.‘
The Iowa Click for Babies has a goal of 3500 hats each year. Last year, TPP volunteers rallied and donated over 1500 NEWBORN size purple hats for this cause. This pushed Iowa CLICK for Babies way over their goal last year. We are positive that the power of TPP volunteers can help this wonderful campaign reach their goals again this year.
Please visit the Iowa Click for Babies Website to get the most up to date information.
You can find cute pattern ideas on the Click for Babies website.
-Hats must be at least 50% Purple
-Hats must be NEWBORN SIZE. Do not make preemie size
–Hats should be about 14 inches diameter (13 to 15 inches)
–Hats should be 4 to 6 inches long
-At least half of your hats should be “boy-friendly”. Many will add stripes of blue, gray or green. Purple football hats are awfully cute.
-Flower hats are still in big demand for the little girls
The official campaign for Iowa Click for Babies 2017 does not start until sometime late spring. So, DO NOT send hats to Iowa Click for Babies.
We will finish the TPP “official campaign” for purple hats on April 1, 2017. That way you will have plenty of time to start Red, White and Blue hats for 4th of July.
