It takes her a day to make one hat, which means she spent a lot of time knitting 75 hats so she could spread some warmth to the kids who really need it.
Grandma's are the best, aren't they!? You know it because you've always loved heading over to granny's to enjoy her loving warm meals and kindly affection, something that you cannot find with anyone else in the world. Take a look at this elderly woman for instance. While most grandmas are absolute angels to their families, this 87-year-old woman, who preferred to remain anonymous, has ensured that dozens of children stay warm in the bitter cold of winter.

She knit 75 hates for children and refused to take any recognition or have any media coverage for her loving, selfless act. Boston 25 News did manage to report that she left them at a nearby park close to her locality for anyone who needed them. “I like doing them. I think it’s fun. I just like to stay in the background,” she said. “Just because it makes me feel good that I can do something for someone.”. Now isn't that just heartwarming to the core! The world is made a better place to live thanks to people like her, who seek to help the less fortunate without asking for anything in return.
So it takes her an entire day just to make one hat, which means she spent well over 2 months knitting those 75 hates so the underprivileged children in her locale could do with some warmth in the bitter cold that lies ahead. Her daughter helped carry the hats and they hung all the 75 pieces along a fence at Nelson Memorial Park in Plymouth. When the pair of them returned to the fence a few days later, they were pleased to see that there were only four of them left on the fence. Each hat was separately wrapped in a ziplock pouch so that they wouldn't get damp and ruined with all the snow and rain.
“Just these little things would mean so much to someone who doesn’t have anything,” she said, adding that she hopes the hats have provided some comfort to the kids who needed them. This is not the first time she's done something like this. She also donates her hats to homeless shelters regularly and she's got plans to do the same next year. “If I ever see anybody in Market Basket or something wearing one of the hats, I’d be thrilled to pieces,” she said.
Wow, that's a lot of knitting! ❤️— Love Just Because (@lovejustbc) January 7, 2018
When people got word of this amazing act, they were overjoyed and took it upon themselves to do their own good deeds. Fal Jandreau wrote on social media: I make and donate hats every year. Last year I donated 500 hats and this year I'm donating 300 hats and 30 pairs of mittens. Mona Thompson suggested: Donate her yarn so she can stay busy and happy plus help others. Sherry Mapes Hubbard offered to help: Amazing! If she needs more yarn....call me! She is a special person!
This wonderful story fits right into the season as we approach the holidays where showing love to the less fortunate is all-important due to the cold weather that lies ahead. Not everyone gets to enjoy a warm meal, family time and a good rest under a comfortable roof as the winter rages on outside. The joy of giving is matched by few other pleasures in this world.
