Daily Inspiration-The Hat Man

“We should all be so driven!” ~ Morrie’s daughter Karen

Morrie Boogaart, aka The Hat Man, 91 years old, is spending the last part of his life, helping those in need. You see, Morrie is in hospice, after being diagnosed with kidney and skin cancer.  Instead of worrying about his own problems, Morrie spends his entire day knitting hats for the homeless. Even though he’s bedridden, he’s using his hands to help those in need before he dies. At last count, he has knitted over 8000 hats for those in need. Here’s his story.
