The American Heart Association is looking for people who know how to knit or crochet to be part of a nationwide project.

In February of 2018, the organization is planning to give out little red hats to thousands of newborns all over the country.  It's all part of a campaign called "Little Hats, Big Hearts," which aims to encourage parents to live heart-healthy lives and to help their children do the same.
