Heartwarming Blanket Stories

A blanket is a healing force that carries warmth from one human heart to another, hope of a better tomorrow

We give to children’s organizations in the Portland/Vancouver area and we hear from people how much our blankets have meant – first for the child and then for the parent who must face terrible fears for their child.

Mama & Eden with Monkey Quilt

Diagnosed with RSV and pneumonia and after 24 hours of being awake, holding her, crying, feeling so frightened, the nurse brought us one of your blankets. I wrapped her up in it and she finally fell asleep! It made a huge difference for both of us physically and emotionally. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you, thank you, thank you!    – Jodi Collins

 

A child finds a hug

Some of the children we serve are not injured or sick but may face an emotional trauma just as damaging. Johnny’s home burned one night; all he had to wear was what he wore to bed… and now he has a Project Linus quilt to keep him warm.
