Charity HAL || The Final Total And The Giveaway Winners!

With the end of July came an end to the Charity HAL, and the amazing partnership I've been loving with Ewe Ewe Yarns. Over the past two months, Heather at Ewe Ewe has been dedicating much of her time to helping spread the word, share the yarn love, and work up hats alongside many dozens of you fellow knitters and crocheters, as we worked our way towards 2,000 hats donated for Completely Kids.

The drive is officially over, and I'm super proud to say we collected a total of 500 hats!!

While we didn't reach our goal of 2,000 hats collected, I'm so excited and proud of our knitting community for joining together and donating an astonishing number of hats in such a short time. Last fall, when I first partnered with Completely Kids, I was able to donate just over 100 hats to one of the many schools they work with. And while it was amazing, and the kids loved the hats they received, I was also very aware that there was still so much need going unmet.

This year, thanks to package after package winging its way to me here in Omaha, we will be able to get hats to every kid in at least four local schools this fall!

I plan to keep right on collecting hats through the summer for this amazing organization, so if you'd like to make more hats, or yours didn't make it in time for the giveaways, I'll definitely still make sure they make it to kids who need them!

And now for the giveaways! Above you will see what five lucky folks won (yarn colors and stitch markers may vary)! I let Zach draw the names so I wouldn't have any chance at bias, which I think he enjoyed far more than he'd ever admit. And the winners are ...

Linda B.
Sandy W.
Nancy H.
Judy H.
Eileen G.

If you see your name, you should have already received an e-mail from me, letting you know you've won! If you see your name, but don't have an e-mail from me, check your spam filters; if you still don't see an e-mail from me, shoot me a message at shemakeshats@gmail.com to confirm that it's you that won.

Congrats to the winners, and thanks again to everyone who sent in a hat!
