The Little Heart Project Spreads Mental Health Awareness

Volunteers are needed to spread some love and kindness before Valentine’s Day. Knit Whit’s Yarn & Crafts in Baileys Harbor is partnering with local resident Sherry Maass to provide materials to make handcrafted hearts with caring messages and share them around the county through the Little Heart Project.

Kathleen Jensen of Onalaska started the initiative last year after experiencing depression. Since then, groups around Wisconsin have been making little hearts to spread positive messages for mental-health awareness.

Drop in at the Red Geranium, 8024 Hwy 57 in Baileys Harbor, on Feb. 11, 10 am – 4 pm, to crochet or knit little hearts. Materials and patterns will be provided. Those who don’t knit or crochet can participate by tying messages onto the hearts and distributing them up and down Door County.
