Happy Hats & Lapghans - Lids For Kids w/Cancer

                            "Comforting Children, One Stitch At A Time."
                                                   Lids For Kids

Cancer & Treatment is frightening regardless of how old you are.

  Making Happy Colored Hats & LapGhans for cancer patients is a small way of bringing some sunshine an comfort into the lives of both young and old.

In my book, those fighting cancer are hero's, they have no choice but to fight this desease.You can bring a little sunshine into there lives by making some Happy Colored Hats (Lids For Kids) (or) LapGhans to show them that they're not forgotten or alone.

Please make your Happy Hats (or) LapGhans with Lively Colors to help lift their spirits, you may label them and share a little something about yourself if you'd like as well.

They must be SOFT as their Heads & Bodies are sensitive from treatment.All Sizes will be greatly appreacheted.

 Knit or Crocheted hats always welcome.Please feel free to use a pattern of your choice

                           {Serving Christ By Serving Others}


Hebrews 6:10 (NIV)
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.

"Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was hungered, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger and ye took me in: Naked and ye clothed me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me."
"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the "least" of these my brethren, ye have "done it unto me"."
Matthew 25:34-36;40 (KJV)
Psalm 118:17 (NIV)
I will not die, but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.
