Occasionally, you come across a story of a small person making a big difference. Here's a recent one:
HATS began with a childhood interest in sewing and a thankful nurse at an elementary school.
When she was 12, Monty churned out a batch of fleece hats with a sewing machine -- too many to keep at home. Her parents suggested she call the Goffstown School District and ask where she could give the hats. She was referred to Bartlett Elementary School, where she found that some students were so cold during recesses in the winter, that they were making excuses to come in and see the school nurse.
After she dropped the hats off, the gratitude of that nurse left an impression. "All of the sudden it struck me," Monty recalled. "Kids in my very age in a neighboring town don't have something that I take for granted."
Monty realized there was something she could do about that. The rest is here.
