I just got wind of Chicago Head Huggers, an organization that collects old running t-shirts to make caps for chemotherapy patients, is 'desperately seeking shirts' for their bal-dannas.
Why you may ask?
“T-shirts given for races are almost always soft 100% cotton, which is perfect next to a bald head, a common side-effect of chemotherapy," says Pam Haschke, president and founder of Chicagoland Head Huggers. "We know that people who run multiple races in a year often just throw those new race tees into the rag bag. By donating them to Chicagoland Head Huggers, they help make a chemotherapy patient more comfortable."
More info can be found at their website.
If you want to donate shirts, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, if you want to knit or crochet a cap for them, check out their website for where to send donations.
