Gwyneth Paltrow, Rebecca Romijn, Debra Messing, Mischa Barton and Patricia Arquette are just some of the celebrities that have joined the Save the Children and the Warm Up America Foundation's Knit One, Save One campaign to help improve newborn survival globally.
The Knit One, Save One campaign is bringing U.S. knitters and crocheters of all ages together to draw attention in Washington, D.C. to the nearly four million newborn deaths that occur each year in developing countries. Participants are asked to create one baby cap to keep a newborn warm during the first critical hours and days after birth, and to write a personal note to the president-elect asking him to lead the way in reducing newborn deaths globally. Early next year, Save the Children will take the personal notes to the new President to Washington, D.C. The caps will be distributed to mothers and newborns through Save the Children's programs in Africa and Asia.Click here to see what the stars said in their personal messages.
