In the past 19 hours alone, Common Care has had over 140 requests for Care Packages… and they keep coming!
If you can knit or crochet, please consider making a few hats to donate to those who have lost a baby to miscarriage or stillbirth. Common Care needs hats from a very tiny “penny hat”, which is about the size for an early miscarriage, to hats made for preemies.
The most needed size are the smallest ones. The smaller the better because most requests are for babies who have passed away between 6-12 weeks gestation.
These Tiny Hats mean so much to those who were never able to hold their babies or who only had a very short time to spend with their child. They make beautiful mementos and are perfect for memory book or shadow boxes. Please use gender neutral colors as much as possible.
Each Care Package costs about $3-4 total to assemble and mail. All monetary donations are used exclusively to package and mail Common Care Packages. Common Care is strictly a charity and all funds go directly back into the organization. If you would like to donate, please send an email to me via Common Care.
