Covered In Love~The Journey to 100 Blankets
It all started with one Facebook post Christmas 2018. I make hand tied fleece blankets for extra money during the holiday season but my heart was calling me to give back. So I created a post that said, "Do you know someone battling cancer? I would love to give back and donate a blanket to someone."
The response was overwhelming. I was only going to make one but ended making three. I wanted to be able to make more but I myself live on Social Security. But God kept putting this idea on my heart.
I wanted my blankets to reach more people.
I wanted to offer some comfort during a very difficult time.
So, Covered In Love~A Journey to 100 Blankets was created. This fundraiser was created to help us purchase materials and supplies to make and send 100 blankets to people battling cancer.
So far, the community has raised enough to make 22 blankets! Some have already been sent out to loved ones around the country.
One blanket was sent to Texas while others have been donated to St. Al's Cancer Center here in Boise in memory of my ex mother in law who we lost to cancer in 2014.
We still have 88 blankets to make and 5 months to hit the goal of 100!
Your donations will help cover the cost of the fleece(average price per blanket is $30), ribbon, boxes to ship and the shipping costs(average cost to ship is $11.50-$17.50)
