Kathie Mack just posted in Facebook that the first box of hats is on its way to Lebanon for Syrian refugee babies and children. She thanks all the dedicated knitters who have, so far, donated over 300 hats (I am not sure that this includes all the hats at GBOW), and her employer, Coast Realty, who covered the cost of this shipment. 
As Roisin said, Good wishes are knit into these special 100% woollen hats.  We’re proud of your/our contribution.

And more….
