Thursday, 5 p.m., is the deadline for caps for Click for Babies.
Click for Babies is an advocacy and awareness opportunity. The Kansas Children's Service League partnered with the national Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome to promote the campaign.
Purple caps donated to the cause will be given specifically to families in November and December of this year as an added reminder that crying normal and it is not OK to shake or harm an infant.
Last year, KCSL collected over 6,500 handmade purple caps and distributed them statewide to birthing centers and hospitals in an attempt to raise awareness and decrease the number of infants being shaken or harmed due to crying.
The goal this year is 7,500 purple caps.
Donate purple cap creations by contacting Bev Long at the local KCSL office, 340-0408 ext. 1001 or by calling 341-2076 to arrange free pick up.
Bring your creations to the KCSL office at 215 W. 6th, (Emporia Humanitarian Center/former Lowther South Building), room 209. Call first to make sure someone is available to greet you and record your donation. You can also contact the project coordinator, Anne Auld, at the Wichita KCSL office by calling (877) 530-5275 ext. 1322 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
