Caps to the Capital

From the Save the Children web site--
Save the Children has partnered with the Warm Up America! Foundation to launch Knitters and Crocheters for Newborns: Caps to the Capital.

Four million newborns die each year within the first month of life — half within the first 24 hours of life. The United States can lead the way in saving these young lives by increasing funding for critical health programs for mothers and newborns.

These babies need more than caps — they need your voice, too.

We are asking knitters and crocheters around the country to take three simple steps to let America’s leaders know they care about saving newborn lives around the world:

  • Make a cap
  • Write the President
  • Unite for newborns

So what do you say knitters & crocheters? How many caps and letters can we send in by January 2, 2007?
