Project #29: Illinois, Halos of Hope

Onward we go, into the State of Illinois this month, where we will be making chemo caps for Halos of Hope from May 15 to June 15 Halos of Hope is 501 c(3) approved charity committed to providing in-need cancer patients with crafted hats donated by caring volunteers. Hats can be knitted, crocheted, or may be sewn headscarves. As of February, 2012, Halos of Hope supports over 450 cancer centers in the United States. Donations from our group will go to those centers in Illinois. For more information, visit their Ravelry group, or their website at www.halosofhope.org. WE ARE SENDING DIRECT, SO PLEASE PUT THE SHARING OUR GIFTS TAG ON EACH ITEM YOU SEND. Mail to: Halos of Hope Attn: Sharing Our Gifts P.O.
