The Cause hat pattern was released in January, 2011 as the inaugural pattern in the series of projects designed by Kyle William to raise awareness of important social issues. After many hours of deliberation about the best group to benefit from the sale of this pattern, I am proud to announce a collaboration with Living Beyond Breast Cancer! Celebrating their 20th anniversary, this amazing group of individuals is dedicated to offering assistance to individuals, whether newly diagnosed, in treatment, recently completed treatment, years beyond or living with metastatic breast cancer. They also give assistance and knowledge to family members, caregivers, friends and healthcare providers by providing breast cancer information and support.
I am HONORED to name Living Beyond Breast Cancer as the official charity for the Cause hat, and proud to donate 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of every pattern to this worthwhile organization. Please visit them on the web: www.lbbc.org to learn more about their efforts and what upcoming events may be of interest.
If you have yet to purchase the Cause hat pattern, now is your chance! Visit the SHOP and purchase the pattern today for $4.00. Included with each pattern is a fact sheet about breast cancer which may provide life saving information, and as mentioned before, the color of the ribbons can be changed to support any cause you choose!
NOTE: Crafty Andy created a crochet version of this pattern! Please visit his website HERE to view and purchase the crochet pattern.
