Caps for Good - Wild Cap for Good (265)

for the Caps For Good project.

Handmade caps to save a life.
"Nearly 4 million babies die each year in their first month of life - half within their first 24 hours - mostly from preventable or treatable causes. But by giving mothers and caregivers a package of simple tools, including guidance on healthy newborn care practices, the majority of these deaths could be prevented. Items crucial to saving more babies' lives include: * Antibiotics to treat infection * Immunizations against tetanus * Skilled birth attendants at every birth * Counseling on breastfeeding * Information on basic newborn care such as keeping the bord clean and keeping the baby warm. This is where you can help by making a cap! Your caps will be sent to Save the Children's newborn health programs in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Visit GoodGoes.org/caps to see stories about how caps like yours are making a difference in the lives of mothers and children around the world."

* The Caps for Good program will conclude on February 28, 2011.
