There are two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
– Albert Einstein
When my partner John initiated The 500 Hats Project earlier this year it seemed like it might be a miracle if we even received 100 hats from strangers in the Valley who knit or crocheted. To have now received over 1000 hats is truly a miracle of generosity and we extend our gratefulness to those anonymous creators. The project update is on the front page of today’s Greenfield Recorder – you can read it here . Hats will be collected until the end of October at the many yarn shops, libraries, and book stores in the Valley – see that list on the 500 Hats Project website at www.500hats.org. The list of social service organizations who will be receiving the hats on November 6 at the Seuss Sculpture Garden in Springfield and distribute them is also posted on that website. Kudos to John, to all of the hat creators, and to the places willing to collect them. It should be a warmer winter for many in the Valley this year.
