Cancer Charity Challenge

      44 Comments on Cancer Charity Challenge
This past week I lost my Uncle Jeff to cancer. My uncle was one of the most lovable guys you could ever meet. He was always smiling, cracking a joke and had one of those laughs that was contagious to everyone that was around him.
Cancer is such a difficult journey that too many people have to face in their lives. In honor and memory of my Uncle Jeff I am starting a Cancer Charity Challenge.
This challenge is for everyone.
For those that know how to crochet, I am offering a coupon code for a FREE HAT PATTERN from my Ravelry shop. I just ask that you pledge to make a minimum of 1 hat (please make more if you can) for someone battling cancer or to donate to a hospital. The hat you make does not have to be made from my pattern, the challenge is just to help someone fighting for their life.
The coupon for the FREE HAT PATTERN is “CHALLENGE”. This coupon will be good  for any single hat pattern through October 31, 2014. October is Cancer Awareness month, so this is just a jump start for you. If you are unable to donate your hat(s), or if you simply prefer, you can send your hats directly to me and I will donate them on your behalf. Just send me a message on facebook for the shipping address.
If you do not crochet, you can still help. I am committing to making 10 hats and donating them to cancer patients. If you would like to SPONSOR A HAT you can order one in my etsy shop and I will make one (in addition to my 10) and donate it on your behalf. You can sponsor a hat for charity through Cancer Awareness Month (October 2014).
Please help me spread the word and share this post, God Bless You All.

    This is a wonderful thing you are doing. I accept this challenge and will donate my hat or hats since I am not sure how many to a couple of people who are battling Cancer. My grandson who is only in the second grade said a classmates mom has cancer and is going to die. It sounds like she is in hospice. That is such a sad thing for someone soo young. My daughter also knows a young lady just getting ready to start treatment.

    Thank you for doing this. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, I have a friend that is fighting breast cancer right now, my cousin is in a battle against malignant melanoma, my great aunt had breast cancer, my aunt is fighting breast cancer now and I could go on but I won't. Thank you so much for challenging people to make hats. It makes such a big difference to those fighting just to know someone has thought of them.

    10 years ago today the doctors told my best friend she had AML. They said she had less than 6 months to live, but with God's mercy and grace she beat it, she beat the impossible. Today we celebrate her, she is healthy and still my best friend. I accept your challenge, in honor of your Uncle Jeff and my bestie Kim Hewett.

    My mother is a Breast Cancer survivor, currently endergoing radiation. Chemo and mastectomy are behind her. I will be making a hat for her, possibly something similar to your "Wrap Me Tender" hooded scarf.
    My father was recently diagnosed with colon cancer and starts chemo next week. He will likely need a scarf at the very least to help keep him warm during treatment.
    Thank you so much for your generosity!

    I was attempting to use the coupon code on the Herringbone Brimmed Beanie, and the code is not working. I tried on a different pattern (Cable Owl) and it works. Even had two patterns in my "cart", removed the other pattern so the Brimmed Beanie was left, and the code no longer subtracted the price of the beanie. The code may not be working for some of the patterns.
