Learn About Starting Your Own Non-Profit

Check out the video series below

Overview

Giving our hearts and our hopes is the fabric that creates a beautiful expression of love. Helping a stranger, and providing joy amid a sea of troubles is a thread that ties us to the better part of ourselves. At Care Cap Connections, our mission is simple: to give encouragement and love to those who need it, through the gift of soft, beautiful hats for chemotherapy patients.

Why We Help

Every Care Cap volunteer comes for different reasons. But one unifying theme among every person who chooses to make a difference is the desire to feel connected, and to help in the fight against cancer.

Making a Cap

This video will show you the start to finish process for making a cap. This process can be done by an individual, or by a group of people with different volunteers performing the various steps of the process. In order to make a cap you will need your fabric -- preferably a soft cotton material. You will need scissors, thread, a sewing needle, a sewing machine, 12 pins, and an iron.

Leading a Production Line

This video will show you the successful method for setting up your group's room so that you can work together in the most fun and efficient process. There are a total of 9 stations, though some of them are connected.Your group members will begin at the sign-in station. Here, all volunteers will sign in, and also sign cards that will accompany the caps in our final packaging.

Starting a Group

Taking a leadership role in starting a group is a highly rewarding responsibility. It takes organizational ability, a true passion for the work, and a big heart.

Becoming a Recognized Charity

Starting your own volunteer group is a fulfilling experience unlike any other. It will change your life and you will make a difference. But there are several key administrative requirements that you need to know. In this video Ingram Philips sits down to share some of the critical behind the scenes knowledge that will help you lead with success.

"IMPORTANT NOTICE:  These web pages will be discontinued in the near future.  Their underlying technical elements are outdated plus our site has been hacked repeatedly recently. We are in discussion with our developer to update and move to a new host.  HOWEVER, a complete movement of all the current information may no longer be practical for our uses.  Our basic use now of any site will be the continuing the Quarterly Calendar.  The notices posted to our volunteers as to the place/date/time are generally of interest only to that target group.  It may be that Mary will send individual emails to each team member rather than use carecaps.org. "Care Caps" is maxed-we do not seek to expand-not in volunteers, not in clinics to receive caps, not in production, not in financial backing, not in distribution and more.  What a blessing! Thank you all for making your contributions to the project. The web pages may not continue but Care Caps will keep shipping...   INGRAM and MARY "
