Massachusetts winters can get very cold – and there are plenty of kids who don’t have the proper clothing to protect them and keep them warm.
An 87-year-old woman, who chose to remain anonymous, spent the last several months knitting hats for children in need. Believe it or not, there are many children in the US who don’t have proper winter clothing.
One would think she would want at least a little praise for her kind act, but she wants to just stay private and do something useful.
This elderly mystery woman says it takes her a day to knit a hat. It is something she can do that keeps her hands active. Her mobility is somewhat restricted due to her age.
After a few days of the hats being hung on the fence, only four were left.
The woman hoped the hats would show those who don’t have anything that someone cared.
And she planned to keep doing what she could to get hats to kids every year.
She says that if she ever gets to see someone wearing one of her hats she would be thrilled to pieces. Making someone’s day a little brighter is all the thanks you want.
There are other elderly men and women performing similar acts of kindness like the mystery woman.

This young lady spends her extra time making hats for the homeless. This has special meaning to her because her Mom was once homeless. Each hat she makes has its own design so every person who gets one will have
