The organization has a database of participating hospitals and points of contact across the country.

Completed hats must be mailed to American Heart Association, 190 Knox Abbott Drive, Cayce SC 29033. They're hoping to give out thousands of red hats to babies to raise awareness about heart health and congenital heart defects.

The American Heart Association and The Children's Heart Foundation co-fund the Congenital Heart Defect Research Awards. The hats are distributed to babies with and without heart defects.

The American Heart Association is calling on the public to knit and crochet red hats for babies. Hundreds of volunteers knitted or crocheted 90,000 tiny caps in a recent year for the project, dubbed "Little Hats, Big Hearts".
