Volunteers nationwide will join the American Heart Association and The Children's Heart Foundation in celebrating American Heart Month.

Supporters can volunteer by knitting and crocheting red hats for babies born at participating hospitals during the month of February.

According to American Heart Association's website, the program, Little Hats, Big Hearts™, "honors babies, moms, and heart healthy lives in a very special way."

Red hats knitted and crocheted by supporters will be given out to thousands of babies during American Hearth Month in February, in order to "empower moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same."
