Natalie’s Knitting Challenge

July 23 - August 31, 2020

Yarn

Natalie’s one-true wish is to support Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and raise awareness for their Social Services Fund, which helps support children and their families as they navigate life changes associated with hospitalization and/or a medical condition.

Please join us in making Natalie’s wish come true by knitting or crocheting hats for teenagers and mailing them to the Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area office.

Step 1: Knit or crotchet your hats at home.
Step 2: Share photos of your hats on social using #KnittingWithNatalie for your chance to win prizes!
Step 3: Ship your hats to the Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area office (1333 Broadway #200 Oakland, CA 94612). (We will also have a few drop off days TBD.)

All hats will be donated to the Teen Health Van, a service within Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford that provides expert care for the community’s high-risk kids and young adults!

You have until August 31 to help us make Natalie's wish come true! We can't wait to see your hats!

About Natalie:

When she was only in seventh grade, Natalie was diagnosed with lymphoma and had to go through a tough course of treatments. She is so grateful to the caring staff at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, who were always there to cheer her up and help guide her family during the tough times. Natalie also picked up knitting to help pass the time during her battle with cancer, and she is now quite proficient!

Natalie’s one-true wish is to support Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and raise awareness for their Social Services Fund, which helps support children and their families as they navigate life changes associated with hospitalization and/or a medical condition. “I want to raise awareness for cancer and help give back to the community and involve everyone in it,” Natalie says of her wish.

There will be prizes for the most hats knitted, most creative hat using Make-A-Wish stars, as well as for sharing on social media! You are also welcome to send a card or message to Natalie along with the hats.
