Help Prevent Infant {Child} Abuse

Click For Babies. Call for Knitters!

Click your needles together to raise awareness for The Period of Purple Crying

You can make a difference and help raise awareness for The Period of Purple Crying by joining the Click for Babies knitting movement!  Right now knitters and crocheters across North America are making purple caps to be distributed to newborns during November along with information on this difficult crying phase. “The word Period means the crying has a beginning and an end.”

The aim is to have a hat for every baby born in November at participating hospitals.

By knitting and sending PURPLE newborn baby caps to be given to babies across North America, you will make a difference by:

Raising awareness for this life-saving project - Period of PURPLE Crying - Prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome
