Purple Hats

April 22nd, 2013

Start knitting or crocheting purple hats for babies to
prevent Infant Abuse. Each and every day infants across North America are shaken and abused because the person caring for them becomes frustrated with their crying. Many times the abuse could have been prevented had the person caring for the infant only known that early infant crying may be normal. CLICK for Babies is a North America initiative to help educate caregivers about normal infant crying, how to cope with crying and the dangers of reacting to crying in frustration by shaking or harming an infant. To help this cause, knit or crochet a cap with at least 50% purple in color. Bring your caps into W.A. Rankin Memorial Library and the caps will be sent to the Period of PURPLE Crying Program by October 1, 2015.
