My Hats For A Purpose project got a real boost this week when the Northern Lake George Rotary Club presented me with twenty stunningly gorgeous hats for kids knitted by Rotarian spouse Cathie Burdick. The hats are in every color of the rainbow and every style imaginable. As I look at each one today I can see the talent it takes to create one of these works of art. But I can see something else. I can see the happy faces of these children at risk when they get to select a hat of their very own. An experience such as this builds self-worth and helps the kids understand that people care about them.
Sometimes one act of kindness helps shapes the life of a child and is remembered for a lifetime. Cathie and the members of the Northern Lake George Rotary Club made a difference this week. Thank you for your generosity and compassion.
