Newborn Baby in Fred Rogers Cardigan

You’re never too young to spread a little kindness.

Newborns at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital cozied up in red crochet cardigans, ties, and sneakers inspired by children’s television icon Fred Rogers.

It was all in honor of World Kindness Day, an event celebrated on November 13. WQED asked Pittsburghers to celebrate the day by sporting cardigans and expressing kindness in the spirit of the late Mister Rogers.

Nurses transformed the nursery into Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood for the event, while guests and staff alike welcomed them with a rendition of “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

And the babies were welcomed to the neighborhood by a particularly special guest—Joanne Rogers, wife of the former WQED star and Pittsburgh native.
