Hospital Dresses Newborns In Red Cardigans In Honor Of Fred Rogers

If you feel like there isn’t enough kindness going around these days, you’re probably right. But fortunately, last Wednesday was World Kindness Day and the world received an extra dosage of pure goodness, courtesy of the UPMC Magee-Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh. They dressed their newborn babies up in red cardigans to honor the late Mr. Rogers, the children’s television star who was known for his compassion and dedication to making people happy. The adorable results speak for themselves.
