Knitting to save childrens lives

I was asked by a friend to knit a hat to help save the life of a baby in Tibet - I wondered what she was on about, until she explained that Save the Children, was asking people to knit a hat to help prevent a child dying from hypothermia. Well it had been a while since I had knitted anything~which was strange because when my kids where little I knitted for them all the time~anyway I sat down one night while watching tv and knitted a little hat and that was me hooked, so I knitted another and then another...they only take about an hour of your time...so please if you can spare an hour or two....knit a hat, just think for every hat you knit you save a childs life...what an amazing feeling knowing something as simple can have such an amazing affect on a families life. Go on knit a hat http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/en/5072.htm The pattern and information can be found here.
Here is a pic of some of the hats that are ready to be posted off.
