Review for Knots of Love, Inc., Costa Mesa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been knitting caps for Knots of Love for over a decade. This excellent and unusual charity provides beautiful handmade caps for patients suffering hair loss due to chemotherapy and other medical conditions. Not many charities do this and for so many years! The patients and the Knots of Love staff are always deeply appreciative -- and interacting with them always gives me a happy lift! This is one of the best charities I have ever supported.

Review for Knots of Love, Inc., Costa Mesa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been knitting caps for this unique charity for about 10 years now. Knots of Love provides loving, comforting FREE caps for people going through a crisis medical situation - usually a cancer diagnosis, but often other traumatic health or surgical challenges as well. It is very difficult to cope with serious illness, but to lose one's hair and a dignified personal appearance can be devastating. Knots of Love's beautiful handmade caps let patients know that they are loved, respected and cherished as they work through their medical challenge. Often patients are deeply moved by these gifts of caps because many in their entire lives have never had anything that was made with love especially for them. Though knitting a cap might seem like a small thing to me, I've learned to never underestimate its effect on another person in a sad and desperate situation! Knots of Love truly deserves to be rated as an outstanding nonprofit.
