Hope 2 Others Heart Shaped Hat
On Sewing With Nancy, Nancy interviewed Karen Klemp and Jane Krogstad from Hope 2 Others. Karen and her husband Rick founded Hope 2 Others—a non-profit organization with a focus on birthing, new-born resuscitation projects, and survival kits to prevent hypothermia for moms and their babies in Eastern Africa. Watch our Nancy’s Corner interview at NancyZieman.com.

Karen told Nancy that many babies were dying of hypothermia. When they asked a birthing center, and others, how they could help, they were told that each birthing center, hospital, and clinic delivering babies has a need for blankets, hats, and booties. These basic supplies are needed for mothers to take home and keep their babies warm.
