On Friday, February 1, the Sebastian County 4-H delivered nearly 100 handmade tiny hats to the American Heart Association.

Residents throughout the county contributed to the “Little Hats, Big Hearts” campaign, which is sponsored by the American Heart Association. “Little Hats, Big Hearts” honors babies and moms in a very special way. These tiny red hats, on thousands of babies, symbolize a shared mission of heart-healthy lives for everyone. The effort also raises awareness of congenital heart defects and prevention.

The program which started in Chicago in 2014, has expanded across more than 40 states and has now embraced hundreds of thousands of babies. February is “Go Red for National Heart Month.”

The Sebastian County 4-H welcomes members of the community to participate throughout the year. They plan to deliver those hats again, February of 2020.

To learn more about “Little Hats, Big Hearts” you can visit the AHA website. They provide instructions, including a pattern to make them.
