Preparing for a Lifetime, It's Everyone's Responsibility

CLICK Campaign

CLICK for Babies is a grassroots public education campaign partnership between the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome and OSDH. The name comes from the well-known “clicking” sound that knitters make with their needles.

The goal of the Oklahoma campaign is to create awareness of the Period of PURPLE Crying to prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome. The Click campaign involves recruiting knitters to make purple colored baby caps. The caps are collected and then distributed to birthing hospitals and public health units where they are distributed to families with their copy of the PURPLE program through the months of November and December.

We will be collecting caps until October 1, 2017.

 Newborn caps can have other colors but must be primarily purple and knit or crocheted with soft, baby-friendly yarn. We have set a 2017 goal of 5,000!

 There are many patterns to choose from:
