"I am interested in women and kids and education, and I'm furious that things in Flint have not been fixed." Explained Colman. "I feel like it is falling off the radar for most of the country right now in the swirl of news we have today, and I wanted to bring some eyes back over to the crisis. I'd been aware of Mari Copeny (Little Miss Flint) for some time, and I think she's an amazing kid and role model."
BabyCocktails has donated $6,000 to Pack Your Back. These proceeds will go towards the organization's water distributions in Flint,
Colman is surprised with the amount she was able to raise. "I figured I could raise a little awareness and probably raise about $1000 to help out. To be honest, this has far surpassed my expectations and I am extremely proud of the knitting community for spreading the word and getting behind me."
Colman is not finished with Flint philanthropy. She is looking to spread the word to more knitters to purchase the pattern. She is also working on making her famous Water hats in various children's sizes for Stuff Your Stocking in the holiday season.
