Click for Babies thanks supporters

To the editor:

My husband and I would like to thank all who helped our store, Gillett Handiworks, with our participation in the cause of Click for Babies. Because of your time and generosity, we were not only able to donate money to the Wisconsin representative of Click for Babies, but were also able to send 200 purple hats for newborns in Wisconsin hospitals.

Click for Babies is present throughout North America. The ultimate goal is to help prevent shaken baby syndrome. The purple hats remind the new caregivers of what they learn in educational materials about crying patterns in babies and how to cope with them. It is called Click for Babies because of the clicking sounds the knitting needles and crochet hooks can make as they are being used in projects.

Thank you again for helping us make a difference in the lives of those babies and their families.

Wendy and Pete Vorpahl,
