Teens are getting RAD

I've sent the first package of 16 beautifully handmade RAD BAD BEANIES to Big City Mountaineers for their programs educating urban teens! (An additional donated hat was a bit small, and so was sent to the Lakota tribe (Sioux nation) on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to keep a child warm there. (Rembember Wounded Knee? Same neighborhood.)

Please check out the awesome blogs of Ann and Dawn, who both contributed a LOT of hats!

More than half of BCM's 2006 trips are dedicated to getting young women into the great outdoors and provide them with mentoring and education. That's another great reason to knit up a fun hat pattern you've wanted to try!

The project continues through summer and fall! We're looking for awesome hats to keep kids warm outdoors! (And cash for postage!) Think cool, creative, jester! Snowboarder! If you have great patterns we should link to, please let me know!
