Two Pittsburgh area hospitals celebrated World Kindness Day in a beautiful way—a beautiful day in the neighborhood way, that is!

In a sweet tribute to beloved children’s television icon Fred Rogers, UPMC Magee Women’s Hospital dressed newborns in the classic red sweater-sneaker combo. Not only did the hospital outfit the completely cute kiddos in Mister Rogers-esque gear, but Rogers’ widow Joanne came to visit.

UPMC Magee wasn’t the only hospital in the area to honor Mister Rogers on this special day. Allegheny Health Network’s West Penn Hospital also dressed its newborns in cardigans. A spokesperson for the Allegheny Health Network, Stephanie Waite, told CNN, “In Pittsburgh, we are also celebrating Cardigan Day, in honor of Pittsburgher Fred Rogers, who modeled kindness and compassion to children.”

Waite continued, “At AHN, we wanted to join in the spirit of kindness with our most adorable ambassadors, our newborn babies.”
