Click for Babies

Click for Babies charity knitting is is new to me, but quite appealing. 

Click for Babies is a grassroots initiative to collaborate with knitters and crocheters across North American to make PURPLE caps for babies.  

The initiative is being organized by the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome (NCSBS) in partnership with invited organizations in an effort to prevent infant abuse, namely Shaken Baby Syndrome/Abusive Head Trauma and educate caregivers about the Period of PURPLE Crying.

The Period of PURPLE Crying is an evidence-based infant abuse prevention program developed by the NCSBS and Dr. Ronald G. Barr MDCM to educate parents about normal infant crying and its relation as a trigger for abuse.

I want to dedicate a portion of my knitting for the good of others. The IWK in Halifax is calling all knitters to help

provide every newborn whose parents or caregivers receive education about the Period of PURPLE Crying with a purple hat to take home with them to help raise awareness about the PURPLE program
