American Heart Association needs people to make hats for babies

The Children's Heart Foundation is teaming up with AHA for the event, and is also hoping to raise awareness about congenital heart defects, from which eight in 1,000 babies suffer.

The American Heart Association is seeking volunteers who can knit and crochet special hats for newborns in hospitals across the country.

The "Little Hats, Big Hearts" campaign was created to celebrate American Heart Month.

The AHA is asking volunteers to make red hats that are red, cotton or acrylic, medium to heavy weight yarn and are machine washable and dryable.

"Little Hats, Big Hearts" started in February 2014 in Chicago, collecting 300 hats in the first year.

The American Heart Association is calling on knitting and crocheting enthusiasts to get to work for a good cause.

In Oklahoma, three Tulsa hospitals are participating - St. John Hospital, Saint Francis Hospital, and Hillcrest Healthsystem.
