Call for knitters to make hats for babies for American Heart Month

The American Heart Association is asking for volunteers to knit or crochet red baby hats to distribute to participating hospitals.

Here in the Bay Area, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital is participating in the program.

The project, called Little Hats, Big Hearts, has been created to honour and celebrate babies, mothers and living heart-healthily.

The organization is teaming up with The Children's Heart Foundation to mark American Heart Month in February with "Little Hats, Big Hearts".

The project helps spread awareness about congenital heart defects - which affect about 40,000 babies born in the country each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - and heart disease.
