Beanies 4 Babies
When a premature baby is born in the US they are immediately taken care of in the NICU unit of hospitals equipped to care for these fragile infants. In developing nations and impoverished communities, there are rarely NICU units. Point Hope collects "Beanies for Babies", tiny hats that will help premies to maintain their body heat so they can hopefully survive. Hats are crochet or knit and Point Hope volunteers distribute them to hospitals and clinics in West Africa, Haiti and underserved hospitals in the US.
