The color purple is very significant when it comes to Casting On for charity!
This little cap was designed for the Period of Purple Crying Program. This program educates new parents about the normal developmental stage of crying and teaches coping skills in an effort to prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome. For more information on this program, check out their website at: www.purplecrying.info.
From now until October 31st, hospitals across the U.S. are collecting little purple hats to be distributed to newborns during the month of November.
