After I heard about the Tragedy in Tucson, I started designing and making a hat for Gabrielle Giffords. I told my mom everything I wanted on the hat. My mom helped me make it. Before the tragedy, while working on my Sew Simple badge for Girl Scouts, I was already making hats for kids who were at the hospital going through chemo. After we were done with all the hats, we went down to UMC to deliver the hats. I delivered the kids’ hats first, at Diamond Children’s Center. I couldn’t give the gift for Gabby directly to her, so I gave it to a lady who worked at the hospital. Two Police security guards were right behind her listening to me say what the hat was for. One policeman shook my hand and said I was “SO special” for making the hats for the kids and for Gabby Giffords. Delivering the hats made me feel special and important inside! I was so happy I could help!
