Becca's Hats

  1. Help Jesse Find His Family!

    This is Jesse Fonta, appearing to be just a homeless man on the streets of San Francisco.  He’s actually an Italian immigrant who was kidnapped at the age of 2 and sold on the black market. After giving him dinner, I talked to him for hours and promised to spread his video to help him find his family.

  2. After giving him a home made hat, this young man chose to be my guide to the homeless community for the day.  I took him out to eat in a restaurant afterwards and he said in amazement, “This is the first real conversation I’ve had in a long time…”

  3. Made some friends in San Francisco today!  Gave homeless people hats and they loved them.

  4. Almost there…

    Be ready for it.  Soon.

  5. Rain

    When I see a homeless man, I think “there must have been some point when you were held and cared for as a baby.” To lose that, to never be held again, is the most horrific sorrow I could imagine.

    Think of those out in the rain and snow this winter.

  6. Just finished a new hat!

  7. Maybe I’m a Sucker…

    A young, homeless man playing guitar on a curb in Cambridge yelled out to me, “I like it when pretty girls give me money!”  I smiled in spite of myself and gave him a couple bucks.

  8. A woman picking up trash along a main street in Boston… Wow, cool.

  9. My Prison Penpal

    Got my first reply from him and apparently TONS of people crochet in jail.  They make everything: bears, blankets, hats, little sweaters, etc.  Just imagining this makes me unbelievably happy.

  10. Colors

    So I just realized, I’m going through a lavender phase, I love it.

  11. After requests, I finally made a beard.

  13. My shell scarf finished!

  14. A day after I made the sign, I took this picture.  It rained the next day, but I at least made three people happy. :)

    Just bought a drop spindle for $10, free shipping and handling, on ebay.  Woot!
