Goal for 2020: Blankets for 25,000 Children in Foster Care

Together we can do it, one blanket at a time!
Current number: 10,969

My Very Own Blanket is still up and running to bring blankets of love, comfort and hope to children in foster care. Here is how you can help us do just that!

  • Order blanket kits online here. Use our "curbside" pick up and drop off bin just outside our Blanket Workshop to safely receive and donate your blankets!

  • Drop off your quilted, crocheted and knitted blankets in the donation bin outside our workshop. We gather them up daily. One of the special blankets we received recently is the colorful quilt above with the message: "Just like you--this blanket is one of a kind."

  • Not local to Central Ohio? Sponsor our "no-sew" blanket kits online to have them sent to you. We will help you get in contact with your local children's services to deliver to kids in care in your area!

A message from Jessica: Blanket angels, you make a difference!
I received an email from a foster mom that made everything just stop, stand still and warm my whole heart!  I want to share this with you, our Blanket Angels, so that you know your involvement and dedication IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE ️ to children in foster care and to foster parents and families!! 
Thank you so much for the beautiful quilts. I got 3 very nervous foster children on Monday evening. They snuggled those quilts, and I'm certain being wrapped in love and comfort helped ease their sad little hearts. Thank you, so very much! Love, Maggie from Ohio

When we all do a little...together we can accomplish a lot!  Together let’s persevere in LVE!
