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

Rating: 5 stars  

KoL is a true charity focused on the men and women ravaged by cancer, and the tiny babies born fighting for their lives in NICUS around the country. By providing hand made gifts of beanies to cover the heads of men and women who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, free of charge, KoL is able to help these patients heal and retain their dignity in an otherwise horrific situation. The tiny blankets made by volunteers give the parents of very sick babies the ability to cuddle them on their visits to the NICU.

KOL is an organization founded by love and almost 100% staffed by volunteers and funded solely by donations. All caps and blankets are 100% hand made by volunteers and donated for free to the organization. The volunteer staff then ships them all over the United States to cancer centers, hospitals and NICUS. I am honored and proud to be a member of KoL.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

KoL is a true charity in every sense of the word. I love that it is not a "machine" but a loving nonprofit that thrives because of the dedication of its volunteers and founder. I retired and was looking for a worthwhile charity to volunteer for. I stumbled upon KOL through the recommendation of a cancer-survivor friend. When I hear feedback from the patients that receive our work, I know I chose the right place to spend my time. The hand-made Beanies and Blankets given to cancer patients and NICU babies are 100% free to them. The volunteers give their time and yarn to make these items by hand and donate them. When I work the booth at the OC Fair and hear the stories from cancer survivors that have received our beanies, it makes me cry with joy. My heart is full. I am so grateful to be a part of this wonderful organization! Here's a shot of some of the beanies I recently donated.
