Last summer, in the spirit of outreach, Dogwood Forest communities were challenged to knit tiny preemie caps for the babies at Northside hospital. While many of community staffs and resident’s hearts were in the right place, they simply didn’t have any knitters to take on the challenge. But for one Dogwood Forest of Acworth resident, this seemingly big barrier wasn’t enough to stop his tenacity for helping others. Ed Moseley, a Dogwood Forest of Acworth resident, accepted the challenge and taught himself to knit. Now months later, because of his efforts to not only knit hats himself– but to get others around him involved, Ed Moseley was able to deliver more than 350 preemie caps to Northside hospital on Thursday for National Preemie Awareness Day.
His kind, thoughtful efforts didn’t go unnoticed either. Ed has been all the buzz in recent days. It started with Fox5 Good Day Atlanta wanting to share the news Ed’s dedication and generosity taping his delivery of the caps to the wonderful people at Northside Hospital. And then, the AJC followed this up with a story on Ed. Since then, Ed has done multiple interviews for Cox Media, GMA (Good Morning America), Inside Edition, and Today.com. And several other outlets have published stories on Ed including the Huffington Post, MediaNOW, and TV news stations across the country from San Francisco to Houston —and Internationally from London’s media outlet, The Telegraph,to outlets in Berlin.
